"speed wobeling"

heh didnt kno how to spell wobelling (still dont)[i mean when the boat tips from side to side]
SO with that out of the way kind of i was wondering if anyone has expeirenced this tipsy feeling with your boat at high speeds? I was on my friends RIBCRAFT 5.85 today and when we pushed it to WOT i thought the boat was going to become airborne (flat seas) or we would flip...anyway to fix this/why does this happen?

Sounds to me that you need to trim in more but what do I know nothing

We have a Ribcraft 5.3 with 90hp we get the same problem at WOT if I am trimmed up too far

You are describing "chine walk". You need to trim the engine down slightly untill it stops.

I get that as well. Trimming down does stop it but slows you down a little.

I think you will fined that it is not Trim Tabs, but trimming the outboard in that you need to do!

I've got to say that I have never experienced this!

I'd be interested if any other Ribcraft 5.85 owners had ? Or is there something else odd about choppywaters mates set-up ?
