  chines and tracking
  Posted by: suiram on Apr-15-13 11:18 AM (EST)

In my experience, tracking is mostly defined by the rocker. Keep in mind - rocker might change depending on load - same kayak will track differently depending on paddler's weight.

Chines do affect the way boat responds to leans.
If paddling is not clean, that is boat wobbles for side to side during the stroke, course deviations might be induced due to chines and not overly pronounced rocker.

Extremes - loaded Greenlander Pro vs Anas Acuta with a light paddler
