Spot on!

.......whereas the drawback of them NOT touching is that, at speed, with lots of up trim, you can get tube bounce which is often confused with chine walking.

i 'd be driving hardbotes a b it at the moment andthey are definitely not as comfortable a ride in te rough so I think the toobs make for a softer ride although a slower one

if at speed the toobs are touching the water then it must be a tricky rib to turn and lean over?

mine are clear of the water at rest and well clear at speed unless doing tight turns and then they dig in nicely until i get the prop out of the water!

mine and mollers sit at similar heights out of the water but my boat sits with a slight lean due to a few things being fitted to the rhs to balance it all up nicely!

couldn't have put it better myself!

When i first took delivery of my new Shakespeare 6.2 At top speed it did chine walk badly For reasons Known to many the tubes were removed and replaced by Henshaws.At my request i had the tubes fitted with a longer overhang at the sturn as well as the bow .The bow for more impact cushioning as they were not enough originaly far enough overhanging and the stern just for the kids to have something to climb up on after knee boarding(and to make it look bigger)The result its over 6.6 metres doesnt chine walk still does over 54 mph with one on board and 50ltr fuel and 25kg in bow locker .It is fast accellarating and will turn well at high speeds
