That's a lifting rail it wont help with the roll you want rolling chocks much bigger the them and will slow you downJoshbel02
Do you have a rail under the waterline there behind your splash rail? I have been looking to see if any boats have any gear like that to alleviate roll. I have a soft chine and roll like a basterd in any seas. Looks like that would help.
If that is what it appears to be please include a little info......

It looked like lifting rails the last 4 feet from his stern and a rail under that going forward.
Do you know of any boats with rolling chocks that I could view or talk to? I just laid 500 lbs of lead in my keel to help. Hopefully that will do what I need. I have a 29 Nauset and it just feels like a cork out there. I was spoiled mating on some really nice DE boats over the years and I have my own now, but don't feel too safe in it with any big seas the way she rolls.
Here's what you might need, this is a 32' Rawson gillnetter they use in Bristol Bay.
Those are probably dual purpose,rolling chalks/bilge keels for grounding out on.
How big is your boat? I put lifting rails on my SISU 22 last year and it made big difference. The stern squats less and very little roll on drift. I do agree with googinhater that on a larger boat they will not be as effective at eliminating roll.
Lifting rails are very wide 2-3" while spray rails tent to be a smaller width. The lifting rails should go about 1"-2" below the waterline. I am sure Nauset could give a precise measurement/location. Bolting them on is the best option but my deck was installed 2-3 years ago by the previous owner and I did not want to tear up a perfectly good deck. I installed mine with 2 part Plexus and SS screws. The screws just held it in place while the Plexus cured. Lifting rails are a DIY project but it takes a lot a planing and time.
The trim tabs will help get your bow down and reduce side to side roll while underway. They will not help/cancel the roll on a drift.
jkporter- Do you have any photos of the lifting rails you installed on your Sisu?I'd love to see them if you have them. Did you go with 2" or 3" width? Thanks
