    Default Chinewalk

    I've developed a chine walk lately, it aint fun. This happened only a 3rd through the powerband on some rollers. Do I go back or continue forward with some Cav Plates ? I wouldn't want to go thru that at W.O.T.

    what was done to the boat to create the chine walking? bottom work, hardware change? kind of vague really to give an answer.

    All I did was install a High Performance Housing to my jet. My old one was worn out so I figured I would upgrade. That thing really pulls the boat out awesome and at about 1/3rd speed it walked and went left and right. I back out and it quit. Total loss of control, after I gathered myself I finally nailed her and it was fine. I tried to see if see if it was gonna do it again and it never did it again all day. I talked to a friend today and he said if it walked on a roller at 1/3rd speed, it wouldn,t be pretty if I hit a roller at W.O.T. Now i'm really thinking.

    I'm confused, so you're saying it walked as you ran parallel with a roller?

    Type of hull might help. And pictures are always worth a thousand words!

    The rollers were going left to right, no big deal, I never had a problem with them. I nailed it and planed the boat like always then I put my foot into it to see what would happen. That's when it jump out like it never did before, then as I started to make power it rocked side to side then went left to right and I got out of it. Simple as that. It scared the shit out of me. I've never lost control of my boat before. I'm asking if Cav Plates would remedy this. I really don't want this to happen at W.O.T. I'm only good for 70 M.P.H. but it was pretty violent at the lower speed, I wouldn't want it to happen at the top.

    Is this a tunnel, winger or vee? Could be getting too much lift!?! Not an expert but that would be my guess. And with too much lift I'm sure some kind of plate system would help keep it stable

    Type of hull will really help. If it is creating too much lift, wedge it down. You went from a standard droop to the hph housing correct?

    It's a 21' Modified Vee and yeah I think thats the problem. I took out the wedge because the housing has the same angle on it. It just never shot out of the hole like it does now, and I guess it did the same thing when I stabbed it.
