That's a lot of angle on your trim tab, I have a arrowstreak 160 & mine is only slightly off straight. It may sound like a silly question but has your engine been mounted correctly? mine is in the centre with the cavitation plate in line with the keel. I've spent all year playing with the set up on mine & now its sweet. Again try moving weight around in the boat. Good luck

We used to run 2 different props on a similar boat a 19 for water sports , skiing etc & a 21 if we were just heading for a long ish run out
With the 21 we were ever so slightly over propped & got the handling trait you describe if the trim setting doesn't work look at switching props

Took the boat out tonight two up. Shifted the anchor to the right hand side and it was fine! Then we went 3 up and it ran wonky...just blame it all on my mate being a bit padded
