Cool .. hard to tell from the top but it almost looks like it has a reverse chine or delta conic type bottom the way the chine heads twoards the water line ..

I was talking online with Ken Warby one time in another forum.. He offered someone some advice.
Another person berated him saying what the H*** do you know ..or something to that effect.
I explained to him who he was actualy talking to "THE Man " ..

Pretty well Delta Conic !
Don't know if you noticed but no join line or rubbing strip either.

Smile Re: Chine Walk, advice required, now improved

Hi,
took a look at all the advice from your forum.
Over the last few months I have made these changes one at a time, taken it out and run it again and again.
Replaced Engine mounts, Tilt Bushes, moved the motor height up and down and found 3/4 of an inch lower than the way I got it improved handling with minimum change to top speed.
Also added hydraulic steering.

All of the above combined with 500 miles covered offshore during the last few months have given me a stable flatform and plenty of seat time. It's all good now and like everybody, I want it to go faster.

Thanks all.
