Bit of a "nobb" fixation you got there - maybe it's wearing the frocks.........

That's as maybe, but I've met plenty of people who think they understand, but don't.

I was just out on my SR 5.4 with the Nauticus Smartabs. At nearly WOT, I was still getting some chine walking. What would you do with OB trim and/or manual tabs to minimize this? I can adjust the pressure on the tabs up or down, and trim the OB more up or down. It was manageable but I'd like to minimize it if possible. I don't have a lot of experience with this, and could use some advice!

You really need the Kiekhaefer 110S model, they're really compact and were the smallest they did, the old 4 litre Phantom 25's etc. used to use them, as does Roger Severy's P28, but sadly they're no longer made, although you might be able to find some old stock in the US if you phone around/do a search.

The next model up (280S I think) are quite a bit bigger, Matt's got them on his Formula.
