I think it will be something like a highside on a motor bike - it'll skip around side to side until it grips (as its sideways by that point) and unless securley strapped onthings tend to be ejected over the side of the boat that is facing the direction of travel . Lovely !

It's something I'm definitely going to watch out for - as I mentioned earlier I strayed into this territory whilst experimenting with trim at high speed. It felt awful enough to make me slow down, but to be honest I wasn't completely sure what I was experiencing. Now I do!

I would absolutely not want that sort of trouble (or any trouble) in the water with my family on board.

As always, good advice on here and excellent when you're learning.

I find that best way to stop chine walking is just to trim in the engine briefly til it stops.

It can be quite uncomfortable but you can normally drive through it.

"GJ, try as I might I couldn't see any evidence of chine walk on those funny paper animals?"

No, it's just a vain attempt to get more people to look at my origami and perhaps try it for themselves. It's quite a relaxing way of passing those cold, dark winter months.

I've heard that leaving origami animals at a murder scene is always recommended to confuse the detectives.
