Mine seems fine, just trying new props at the moment. Came with a 13 1/4 x 15 (trying a 17 & 19). Boat is an Avon 560 with the Honda 90 4stroke. It seems very stable from my experience (limited). Top Speed so far is 35kts (3up). Rogue Wave has been on it although not at 35kts and liked the setup I remember. Mind you anyone with the name Stuart must have good taste

I'm sorry, that doesn't make sense! Let's try again:

No, still doesn't make sense, one more time,
"handles nicely, chine walks a little"
No, I can't make sense of that.

Chine walking's horrible! It is not nice handling!
