    That's the reason for your problem, thou you didn't say the tank capacity. Just for to test it take it one time for a ride with (allmost) empty tanks to see how much it changes..

    JUST A thought but have you tried running one motor slightly faster than the other by just a few hundred rpms but one fighting against the other works with Cats to hold steady . Also toe out rather than toe in has more of a tendancy to raise the bow !!!

    I must say its the dumbest idea for the bottom of a boat i ever seem ,Sorry dont grasp what the hell the idea is ?? its not a tunnel drive because the props are to far away from the shape in the hull . its an abortion to say the least . It must have a terrible tendancy to suck the hull down when it is taking off and even at speed . it must still do the same :p
