I find that trim does very little to my RIB at WOT, apart from making it very unstable if I trim out too much. Revs don't go up and down like other people say happens on their boats and speed is hardly affected. At lower speeds if I trim right out in a following sea, that works quite effectivly on my setup.

Rib Eye 6.5 with a 150 yam HPDI

Hi

The Boat starts to Chinewalking at 47 and the boats top speed that with have had it at is 55 with 4 people in it and that was not good because it start to do it very badly. so when i trim out that shud stop it then. try that a bit but trim up a bit to much and it was doing it very badly. so you are saying if i find the right trim angel that shud stop it.

Thanks
