That hull its pretty long relative to it's width which makes me wonder if you need those trim tabs set so steeply. The hull has a nice attitude at speed but the tabs are digging a deep trough in the water as is evident in the "forced water cooling exit" photo. At some point you might want to ask your friend Tony about them and or do some experimenting of your own.
Tony has told me many times to take OFF those Trim Tabs! He installed them because he had Brushless Power on the model before I took ownership. However, I just like the looks of those Trim Tabs.

Tony tells me that if I remove them the Bow will raise UP higher..
