Increased power = faster. Faster = more lift. More lift = less surface area in the water. Less surface area = more likely to imbalance. Imbalance + high speed = chine walk.
And Chine walking....if you don't Back off...may well lead to the whole Boat "Hooking"....on its Axis..especially in certain sea States.....not much fun I'm reliably informed!!

Can't see any chine walking in the OP's video.

Boat seems to plane early despite being fitted with one of the heaviest outboards on the market and crew and console aft.

Still riding with bow a bit high suggesting capacity for additional weight forward.

Looks like a nice deep-vee forward as well. Totally different boat to the second video.

Not enough evidence to form a negative opinion.

No connection - never heard of them.

Nobody said it was chine walking, the referance to chine walking is in response to post No. 3

Fair enough, but as I read it the suggestion was that the original boat was overpowered, and it was then suggested this would cause chine walking.

My point, and I'm sure what Poly was alluding to as well, is that a poor combination of weight distribution, hull design and power delivery are the true factors that result in any badly performing RIB or powerboat design.

Increased power = faster. Faster = more lift. More lift = less surface area in the water. Less surface area = more likely to imbalance. Imbalance + high speed = chine walk.

The advice always given here to people who experience a chine walk is to back off the throttle. There is other advice about trim, engine height etc to try to prevent it - but the universal message is that to stop it rather than make it less likely: slow down.

Its probably exaggerated on boats which are overpowered because they tend to be badly set up too with heavy engines etc.

Now I'm* not saying 350HP on an 8m boat is overpowered, I was answering the question "What happens if you over power a RIB, doesn't it just go faster".

*although ISO6185 suggests it might be!
Slap on the arse for you Dirk ... and an experienced member too ohh dear

Im with you Poly

That probably goes over the top of the majority of heads.

I'm fully aware of the reasons for chine walking, and "overpowering" can certainly be a cause of it, but it's more common for it to be caused by incorrect set up, slack steering, too higher motor, worn engine mounts, hull defect or a drivers inability to correct the problem with proper throttle control or incorrect steering inputs.

In my limited experience of set up etc, I've found the biggest problem is not over powering, but driver error.

I'm a bit rusty on the current rulings, but I think that wouldn't apply to this particular boat.

I assume you mean iso 6185.62?
