    Like your thinking, but unless you are changing speed suddenly, plus this would normally be associated with an oversize motor in a boat.
    Even that could be reduced by the addition of bilge keels.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi chaps , been thinking a bit more about the boat roll. I wonder if its the torque being produced by the propellor. you get tremendous body roll on some of the more powerful cars. l have quite a few spare 2/3 bladed props l think try a smaller size and see how it go,s
    But that will be when when they open up the club pond.
    stay safe.

    I agree with Colin that a pair of bilge keels could considerably help with your rolling problem. I note that you have already tried ballasting, but have you put in enough. It is surprising how much you need sometimes

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Rick roll is usually caused by instability or too high a centre of gravity.
    Under what conditions is it most noticeable,
    Sometimes wind on the superstructure can cause an imbalance.
    Cheers Colin.

    Can an out of balance or bent prop have influence on roll.
    Just thinking outside the box I have no knowledge of this.

    Can you put some photos, showing hull shape, it may need a pair of bilge keels. I suggest this as it was a problem on a full size boat my family once owned which we cured by fitting a pair of bilge keels.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi guys just finished a referb on a fishing boat l got off Ebay looks really nice on the water but once under way it starts to roll from side to side. She 20 ins long by 8ins beam l tried some ballast l put a 4sell 5000 mah lipo battery in the bottom just lowered it in the water made no difference to the roll movement.
    Any ideas as to what l can do to stop the rolling.
