Can someone explain the dynamics of this and what it feels like?
To add to Travis comment, to me keel walking feels like the boat is "flopping or falling" over from one side to the other. And yes I could not agree more with Travis, it is not a great feeling falling or flopping anywhere at 25 plus knots!!
If you are serious Bill, no the BHM has never keel walked. My BHM and most others make a steady 14-16kts in almost all conditions, within reason. I know of a couple with 500 hp and they do not keel walk either. I am sure the wet keel and the ability to put a 28" wheel under it has a lot to do with it.
Wasn't this a real problem with a well known 38 foot design above 22kts.?
what well known 38 was this?
Thanks guys, Capt Larry what hull have you experienced keel walking?
