100%
I've driven a few and they're fine.
Of course all RIBs will Chine walk if you're trimming out to Maximum at High revs..ie trying for a Max Top Speed run/trial..providing they have enough power to make em fun that is!! Usually a good sign to Back off!

My 585 tonked along quite nicely with a 175 on the back, though it did start to twitch at around 46-48kn. Always worth checking the rating plate on Ribcrafts for max hp, they often build custom boats to owners requirements, my 6.4 is rated to 300hp.
With a 90 on the back it will move, but not set you alight, probably disproportionately heavy on fuel as well.

Jambo / Maximus ,
I don't post very often here nowadays because of some of the crap that flies about . When I do post I try to get my facts right........

Soon after I bought the Ribcraft in 2002 , there were some posts about such matters as chine walking 585 . I've had a quick look but can't find them.

I exchanged a few emails with Jason at Ribcraft who explained under certain circumstances it COULD happen .

Just because you have not personally experienced it , it doesn't mean that it CANNOT happen . Regards Bern

Wow Bern I was not having a go at you or your facts. All I was saying was that I've had two ob's and have not had any problems with chine walking. But there again I drive within capabilities. Regards B

Surely any fast planning hull running enough hp will chine walk if you're 'brave' enough with the buttons?

I've trimmed the life out of my 7m at full chat attempting to get past Jim and things have become quite 'interesting'.

That 585 with the xl 115 is no longer for sale. I know this because it's mine. For what it's worth, the 115 is a great rugged engine (I've had three of them on different boats) and in my opinion is the right sort of power for the boat. With two people it tops out around 36 knots though I've touched 38 in very flat water. However it won't chine walk or skip, whereas a 585 with a 150 in my experience will do both. I'm not saying a 150 is a bad thing, it goes really really well, but the 115 is a very sensible option (if sensible is your thing!).

I wouldn't have thought 90hp is enough, you'd really feel the lack of power in a head sea or loaded with 4 or more people.
