    Reducing low speed chine walk?

    Hey guys, what's my best option for reducing low speed chine walk? I took my daughter out in the GPR this morning and it was very noticeable under 25 mph, speed fixed it but riding with her I was in that 20-25 mph range most of the time.

    Thanks!

    What makes this hull unique is how it rocks off its keel creating less drag and giving that side to side chine walking...might be scary for people not use to it....hmmm ...if you bring the trim down 1 or 2 that will put more hull inthe water...try it first by yourself....maybe someone might chime in with other ideas...G/L

    Chine walk freaked me out with my first GPR. Just got my girls used to riding at 30+ mph when one of them was with me.

    The QSTS trim or the trim tabs? I had the trim all the way down, it helped but was still very much there. I was thinking maybe a washer or two under the trim tabs might help?

    That definitely took care of it, but since we were riding in the river (unknown obstacles) I didn't want to get going too fast with her on it. I always rode on lakes before now but the chop was always an issue. Gotta admit I'm starting to love the relatively smoothness of the river. Guess that's why I never noticed this before.
