Triton Chinewalk

No mater where I set my jackplate I still have chine walk, I have a triton tr186 with a Yamaha 150 V Max, 6'' hijacker jackplate, Tempest pro 23 pitch prop. I get 60mph at 5500rpm my jackplate is 5 3/4'' above transom, the boat is riding flat in the water, if I trim it all the way up it starts to lean back (like it should) but starts chine walking again, I have know idea how to get more top end without the chine walk, it feels like the front is pushing down and not lifting high enough to get a smooth ride, at 60 its fine, but I should get more top end I think.

The chine walk is the nut behind the wheel. You have to control the walk with small steering corrections. The faster you go, the more you will need to do this. Chine walk is the boat doing its job. Like riding a bike for the first time, you will need to gain the skill to master it.
