    Interesting saying, I am also interested in the definition.

    Do you mean stability or tracking issues... Chine? - the stern of the craft wondering perhaps?

    Is it wondering or wandering?

    maybe it,s just my definition but it comes from chims on a vessle or the keel and the boat falls from side to side as it's driven along.Which is what my seadoo is doing ,it will fall off the centre line of the boat aprox 4-5 degrees either side as your going along at 1/4 to 1/2 throttle,,,which give you a feeling your just started a turn which you have'nt

    Ahh, you mean "chine walking"

    A lot of hulls will swing from side to side at a certain speed. Even my RXP did it at certain low speed. Once I put a Riva Open Loop plate on it, I could then get it to lay over to one side or the other and stay there at a certain speed until the dynamics of the hull took over once the speed picked up. My GPR does it at low speed. Must hulls will do it at some point when just off plane and the speed is maintained.

    Ok, I see what you mean, chine walking - starboard to port, port to starboard...

    Thanks for sharing this. I see it on my 2011GTI 155 Limited now and again. It appears to be normal.
