you could always try some doel fin type foils. i had the same problem on an Avon Adventure 4m which was cured by them. There are varying opinions and experiences on here of the foils but my experience on a similar size, arse heavy boat was that they cured the nose high / high planing speed. They are a relatively cheap fix (if it works) but beware they will leave 4 holes in your anti-ventilation plate if you remove them.
shifting ballast forward will also help as also suggested
hope this helps

This is a real problem where i launch as there are 8knt speed limits all over the place. I have got storage room at the bow (which drains all the way out the stern). I am thinking of filling up some big floatation bags with water and if I want more less or non at all just draining it off.
Nothing really to add to your thread just that its nice to know I'm not the only person with this erectile problem
