I would disagree with that. In my experience, trimming up and adding speed will reduce the torque roll and lean. The prop does not dig into the water as hard and is spinning closer to the surface. Of the single engine boats, I've owned, this has always been the case.

It sounds like the drive may not be square to the transom. It may that if the drive is not straight it may cause the boat to lean as the drive have a tendancy to want to square itself at speed. Does the boat lean at slower speeds? this might be a tell tale.

Boat is leaning to port, with port tab down 12in is bad math... Something wrong in tab land I would suspect ..... Without tab indicators would be impossible to indicate a floating tab .... Only other thing would be disturbed water for the tab to fly, not able to get a solid bite on the water, caused by other mods youve done ........ bottom line, port tab is not getting a bite .......
