Do you have trim tabs? If so they may require lowering by adjustment, you'll benefit from dropping the right side slightly more due to the torque twist from the prop.

Also as mentioned moving the COG will definately help, if you battery pack positions aren't adjustable then i would make sure they they were. I simply lay 2 lines of velcro out in the hull and two on the packs this allows me to lay them at variable points which i adjust every run depending on the weather conditions (rougher water move them forward, calm waters back) there is a limit to how far so i have marked with permanent marker the optimum COG for various conditions.

I would expect it to be one of the above rather than a proping issue and adding weights as you suggested is just adding weight (obviously) i would try every other avenue before considering adding weight.
