Problem 2 - how about big old rollers - I think avon do some for such a purpose - if not them then there is a company out there that does.
(1) Seems an odd one by what others say, its just one of those irritating things, perhaps a lump of lead in my pocket or a small boy strategicly placed might cure it.

I expect that you will get some left tilt if everything is set up centrally . Maybe try borrowing a differant prop - no idea why but some people withthis problem on bigger boats found it helped. I'd say that unless you get the boat running flat it will be very very hard ride ( they are not the deepest of hulls !) . MOre common is the stern heavy tendancy of these boats which either trim tabs or 'fins' on the OB seem to fix.

Any pictures of said problem boat ?

Also found these

, (maybe x 3) - that may help the launching problem depending onhow fast its winched up & down the beach ? At 350 Kg you should be fine with 2 under the boat & a third being moved stern to bow etc .
