    Default Bassseeker 570 chining

    We have a 570 Bass seeker with a 200 efi mercury motor with a 21" Pro speed stainless prop and a 10" jackplate

    We have the following problem

    At 91Km/h GPS speed we experiance very bad chining to such an extend that we have to trimm the motor right down and slow down to +_ 83km/h it feels like you want to fall out of the boat

    We have already dropped the motor as low as possible on the jackplate

    We have also spoken to Niel he recons we have to drive throug it?

    Can anyone HELP? What do we need to do to fix this?

    I would lift the motor to eliminate the chine, but doubt you will ever get rid of it totally. Like your car, you need to learn to drive it. It's one thing driving around town at 60 and another around a track at flat taps. You need skills to do the latter.

    Speak to Dean on 0836777909. He had the exact setup, but with a hydraulic jack plate, and that 570 used to run very smooth, no chine walking. In fact he could leave the steering at over 100km/h and the boat just ran perfectly.

    I had very severe chine walk at anything over 85km/h with my Bullet, I had to learn to control it (to a degree), short "chopping" movements of the steering wheel in the opposite direction to the "rocking" worked best, you eventually get a feel for the timing. My experience was that it's not so much "driving through it" because it didn't go away, more a case of "driving with it". I also learned to plan my ride so that I drove a wide left (or was it right?) sweeping turn towards my destination, which also helped a bit.

    I think that your weight distribution can make a big difference as well, which could explain why 2 similar boats, with the same setup as mentioned above have such different handling characteristics.

    Fortunately my Ranger doesn't have the problem, I can take my hands off the wheel at 96 km/h (top speed, 2 up, with a 150 Optimax) and she sits as steady as a rock ~ not that I recommend it nor do it as a matter of habit, just illustrating my point.

    If your boat chinnes you need to lift the motor. But ask Neil he is on the site!!weight distribution is also key!!!! look at you battery placement. Trolling motor batteries should be in front with the 570

    What I found really weird is what moving the motor up/down a really small amount (1" or so) made. Sometimes, only a small adjustment will make a big difference.

    I recommend you drive through to Neil and play for an hour on the dam. At the end of the hour, you are happy, your boat runs true, and you won't look back.

    I agree on the weight distribution by the way. I moved my batteries forward and got a miles better ride. I can trim out better as a result of the weight adjustment too.

    Howzit

    EQB knows the 570 very well,

    What I've seen over the years is that the 570 is NOT prone to chine walk (even if not quite right on motor height)

    It sound slike you have a severe problem as chine walk is usually sorted with "slight" adjustments on the wheel.

    If, however, your motor is slightly skew, (off vertical centre) then all kinds of kak hits the fan. Biggest indicator if this problem is nose roll (the nose appears to be moving in a circle as you move forward.

    Check this by measuring centre of prop shaft to two known points on each side of boat - e.g. transom corners (not trailer). If skew, slack off the bolts and push to correct and tighten up. NB this is a DANGEROUS CONDITION - you must make sure the motor is vertical.

    The 480 is designed like this as well, however speaking to guys that have got theirs set up properly, they have all moved the batteries to the back??
