Hey Jeff ! Yea I went with twin ram hyd. steering on my 252. Removed the chine walk up to 75. Dont know above that, because thats the best ive seen so far.

There was a member on OSO (PAST DUE) that has/had a '97 Fastech 312 running over 100 mph. He sent me a picture of a type of fin installed on his K-Planes. He claimed it really settled down any chine walking. He hasn't been active on OSO for years and I don't know where he got them or if he made them himself. I also recall someone saying that Sunsation would install these on K-Planes on some of their boats. Just some food for thought.

Here's a vid of him running rock solid at 98.4 mph.
