That is what the bottom of My kona looks like! Ok what is chin walking???

Chine walking is when the boat starts rocking left and right. It's uncomfortable and if it walks too far the side of the hull will grab and make the boat turn. It usually happens when the boat gets too far out of the water.

I'll add my own question in the mix. I got this Hondo Pantera hull with a trailer last week. It has a slot cut in the center of the keel aprox 1-2' in front of the intake. I assume this was for a turning fin to help the boat turn rather than slide?

How are these fins attached? Where does one buy one or is it something you just build yourself out of stainless or aluminum plate?

Chine walking;  adjective,  to determine how big and hard ones balls are by how l long the driver keeps his/her foot on the gas.



Sort of a skipping, sideways,  crab walking left to right rock. Mostly identified by how tight your ass cheeks grab for vinyl in the seat.

Not a good thing.

That is a drop through fin slot.

You might check Glenwood Marine to see if you can come up with a matching replacement.

Wow. That seems like an awesome way to rip a hole in the bottom of the boat if you ever hit something in low water.

chine walking SUCKS!

The bahner is really bad about it. Starts right around 65-70 or so it can get pretty violent if you keep it aired out.

Though, ive noticed with the new motor and the extra power it doesnt do it nearly as badly... Maybe im not airing out as much to get to the same speed?

Your Bahner is a delta bottom, is it not?

And more ponies does typically help.

It helps prevent this kinda thing Philo...

  1:00 in for the action. EEK!

I have one on the bottom of my Spectra, it's been hit and bent, I'll replace it over the off season I think, but wouldn't want to remove it.

Make sure the cav plate on the lower unit is at the keel line. Not above. You must have a day cruiser.

GT, I recently bought a Bahner with a delta pad. It has what I'm assuming is a stock berkeley JG with a stock nozzle on it. I'm going to be ordering a place diverter in the next few days and was wondering if I should add a droop snoot now or see how it handles before I do? Are there any negatives to adding a droop on a delta pad? Benefits? The set up right now runs 63 on GPS. It has a harman marine 454 (previous owner told me it's the 405 kit?) with 415 - 430 hp (again this is per previous owner) This is my first Jet so I'm reading and learning as much as I can. Thanks

Too deep is actually bad too. It does make them ride better,but can get funky at speed.

What prop are you running?

If you have the ponies, I would consider looking into a chopper.

If you have the patience and can hold off, I would drive it first.

The droop on a delta can be too much lift. With the Horsepower you have now I think the Diverter will be plenty. If you do decide to go with a droop, I would highly recommend having the intake fit with a shoe and ride plate.

Yeah... this is the family boat so not gonna mess with the setup to awful much. Now that my Weiman is almost done.

Current prop is one of 2, i have a no name stainless 3 blade 19 pitch that i use most of the time. It came with the boat and if it gets screwed up i dont care. Rpm's are decent at cruise speed but its really nice for skiing or tubing, something we do often. But you stab the throttle and itll see 6k plus with this one and pretty much right now. Has great bite though

The other prop is a Mirage Plus 21 pitch, its really nice. For the life of me i cant remember if its been on this engine or not. Only have had it out about 3 times. But with the last engine we could swing it 5200-5400 and it worked well. Nice cruising at 3500rpm at 40-45 mph. (again if memory serves correctly somewhere in that neighborhood)

I really think that i could spin a 23 to about 5k or so with the new engine. But again its the family boat supposed to be fun for watersports and just cruising.

Ive always felt that with the lift built into the hull, the trim on the drive, and most if not all of the props i have being considered (bow lifting) props that this was part of if not the problem. Just to many things helping get its big ass out of the water. And that it does. Trimmed out under heavy throttle its riding on the rear foot maybe less maybe a little bit more. But not much hull is in the water at all.

Its funny you say that, I did buy a chopper for it a 21 pitch. Stainless won it on ebay for 25 bucks. Though it was ugly as sin figured try it out. If it helped straighten this thing out then we could spend the money on a nicer one..

threw it on the boat at home. Took boat to the lake. yeah damn prop was reverse rotation. that was nice and embarrassing.

Actually now that the jet boat is almost done, considering dropping the cam down a couple notches in the bahner. Its the family boat doesnt need to see 6k. 60 or so is plenty fast enough for it.
