Default Hull starkes modification.

Hello Maxum owners,
Are there any here that have tryed modifying hull starks on their Maxum boat? And if so what was the difference in sailing?

I am considering making mine closer to aft. to gain some more lift at low speed, and also more stability at high speed.

Kind Regards
Thomas

That sounds pretty extreme. Boat hulls are designed to lift through factory design. Modifying the hull could seriously damage the integrity of the hull (boat).

Unless you really know what your doing this type of modification can have very bad impacts on the boats handling and stability.

Hull strakes, not starks.


Exactly what Moonriver and mmwjr said!

You might try adding a pair of tabs. They can help with lift and stability.

Hull strakes don't affect low speed handling and they don't aid in pointing. They also don't improve chine walk.

Trim tab will give you far more effective stern lift at slower speeds. bow wander at slow speeds is the product of physics, it happens with all boats and is exacerbated by over steering.
