    it's about as good a definition as I've ever seen, even in the books....

    Sportfisher Running Strakes

    Wrt Sportfisher Hull Design - Does Running The Outboard Strake Out To The Transom, In Practice, Generate Lift At Transom And Assist With Reduction In Chine Walking?
    Nb. Say Transom Deadrise To Be About 16 Degrees &
    The Inboard Strake Finishs Just Aft Of Midships

    Appreciate Your Inputs....

    Strakes could have those effects (to a modest degree) on a light high performance hull. But most any inboard sportfisher would be to heavy for this to apply.

    I suspect if the boat is chine walking, then it must be "running chines dry" and therefore be high performance - particularly when it is only 16 degree.

    Agreed. However the post does not make it clear whether this boat is actually experiencing chine walking, or the question was on general principles. When I hear "sportfisher" I think more in terms of a Luhrs than a Fountain. Especially with only 16 deg of deadrise.
