Nice itinerary.

I will be really curious as to how you like the rolling chocks. I am surprised that they were able to do that work in just two days.

Chocks

Prefabbed, fellow showed up at 9:30am was done and gone by 18:30. Three working, I was left to bottom paint on Saturday and futz around on Sunday, back in water on Monday. I am about the 6th NP to have them installed. Rounding Cape Caution I was following 2 fishing boats, and I was not rolling as much as either of them.

The chocks contain the stern wave, that you see at 6 kts and up. Without the chocks that wave started about 6 ft fwd of stern, now it comes out the back. Must add some lift to the stern. They seem to dampen the roll and slow down the pitch. I am not disappointed. Dan

I'd heard the term but had to Google it - they're bilge keels.

I'm leading the group of boats that invaded Fury Cove a couple days ago when you were there! We had a great trip around Cape Caution.

Currently in Shearwater, heading for Ocean Falls today. Safe travels!

People (builders) have played with their bottoms forever. Bilge & fin keels, rolling chocks, hard, soft and reverse chines. These things have been around for some time and are as debatable as almost any other boat topic from BBQs to blowers. In the true sense, rolling chocks and bilge keels are different.

Here's a discussion from 6 years ago.

I believe Sunfiord does or did make roll chocks that you could buy. They made need some modification to fit non Sunfiord hulls. These are very common among the commercial fishing fleet.

Problem is, it is hard to come up with real time, long time, data.

First thing I think of is, something more to drag around under water. Next I wonder about the method of attachment as a retrofit. Then I wonder about placebo....washed cars and new sneakers go faster, right?

Maybe Tad will give us a professional spin.

When Rogue is done playing around on his boat, he can get back to the serious work of showing us pictures.

I am very interested to get your impressions on the performance, then on the cost of install etc.... I still am impressed with the 2 days.

When I first saw the thread title, "Rogue Alaska Trip" my only thought was, "Aren't they all?" Isn't it within the term Alaska to know it's rogue? That's a bit of the spirit of the area. Of course I then realized it was your boat name, but it still very much fits. When we were there we considered ourselves a bit Rogue.

You wouldn't believe some of names I have been called. The fellow that installed them has done over 2000 over the years. May have picked up a 1/2 a knot. They are 21 feet long, 12 inches sticking out at about a 45 degree angle from turn of hull.

Can't wait for pictures. Will these function as bilge keels as well (ie support your boat on the hard or a smooth bottom)?

Dhays, Nope won't do that, but might change the angle that you heel over when you run aground, refer to your pics.
