    Chine walk speedboat

    Hello. My name is peter and im from sweden. I bought a italian boat Albatro 28 with 2 mercury 250hp. I have full hydraulic steering and also hydraulic jack plate.

    Its very unstable and when i hit 70mph .its starts chine walk so much that i loose control. Its like balancing with a bicycle. When i look at other hulls they have alot more strakes. I think that is the problem. I think the boat is coming to high on the water line. From the center of the boat to the strakes its 60cm. I think its in the air when i drive fast. If someone is kind to tell me what to do? I am very good at fiberglass and can do almost everything. I dont just have the right knowledge to know what to do. I want to drive without risking my life in about 85-90 mph. Its not a common boat but they race with this in italy. I have contacted the manufactor but still no answer.

    Thanks /peter

    Might take some seat time to drive it. Also, I would try some other props. Those choppers give a ton of bow lift. Maybe try some cleavers. Or, some performance 4 blades with thru hubs.. The stepped hulls are designed to run flatter than a non stepped vee. Yours has a LOT of ventilation. And I too think it is a very cool boat...

    Chopper style propellers can make handling issues , especially when trying to drive thru the hop or chinewalk you might want to try some cleaver propellers they are like night and day difference over choppers ,engine height plays big role also

    Yes. It has no pad. When i mean chine walk its bounching from one side to other and look at picture my mark. That hits water surface.
    I have driven alots of fast boats and good knowledge on drivning a fast boat. But this is impossible. tried everything. Goes Little better with tabs down.
    The boat is made of Kevlar and carbon and weight only 900kg.
    Yes. It goes better in waves. No waves and its impossible.

    The boat has no pad? Was it ever intended to go over 70? The boat looks awesome but without a pad I don't any amount of setup or props will help it balance at high speed. Looks to be built as a 70 ish mph wave slicer.

    No pad on this bottom. These hulls are designed to run offshore.

    First off very cool boat!!! But I think you have to be Houdini to keep that balanced. If you have the means to build a pad that's what I would do. I know nothing about these boats but the pic in post #14 show no LWP on gearcase so makes me wonder if these boats are build to ride that high. IMO if this boat had a 10" pad it would be an amazing boat to see set and running. I would think start after 2nd step and transition it to stern. And then when done please build bunk trailer it hurts just to see it sit on rollers lol. Best of luck and I for one would be interested to see what you do.
