   Chine walk .... from GGG Jr.   7/28/1999 2:51:00 PM
 Larry.....I am glad that you asked the question, Many are shy to ask questions here for fundamentals. Chine walking is common to many High Performance Bass Boats ( BB with more than 150 HP). You have probably seen this term used in regards to Tritons of late ( and heavy chine walking is intrinsic with Earl Bentz Designs ). At one point or another, most MAJOR manufacturers have had a boat that "Chine Walks" such as early HydraSports, Early Stratos, Early Champs, Skeeter Wrangler....and MANY MORE.

To answer your question, "What is Chine Walking?". Think of the boat running along at 60 mph...slight trim with a bow up posture. The boat is balanced on the Pad ( rear end of boat) with VERY LITTLE wetted surface. The chines or runners are helping track the boat straight ( hopefully the runners or chines are straight!!! ). Since all bass boats only have one Engine, and the prop(s) are not counter rotating, the prop has the tendency to push the boat off the pad or into a light turn. This tendency to push the boat into a slight turn , drops it off the pad and thus "Chine Walking" occurs. The boat bounces from the right to left chine (walking) and at high speeds can be dangerous as the rocking motion becomes more exaggerated.

Chine walking can be controlled, and the only way to learn how is SEAT TIME. You will learn to "BALANCE" the boat on its pad using slight steering correction and trim correction.......Hope that this helped and rememnber that boats today dont walk nearly as bad as they did 15 or 20 years ago..........GGG
