Pad walk and chine walk are completely different animals. A pad bottom boat like a Velocity will allow you to feel how the boat is hooked up and allow you to make adjustments.
Chine walk is the bottom losing lift, usually because of too small a strake for the power/speed you're running. Essentailly, the bottom is losing lift and dropping back to the water. Many times, chine walk is a result of too much stern lift. At the beginning of walk, you can adjust your way through it. Powering into it is a bad idea- the boat can get into some severe oscillations and eventually bite in hard and hook. I bit one in hard enough to stick the tip of the bow under and roll it forward. Ouch.
Sometimes chine walk is telling you your x is wrong or you need to try a different prop. Worn steering components can be a significant contributing factor- it can also be a sign that your steering isn't up to the task. Given the option, most folks upgrade their engine power before upgrading the steering. Worn mounts on outboards can also be a contributing factor.
