The 99 did fine, the 88 with the speed Master and transmissions is very Stern heavy. You have to drive it and use tabs. It has a bow tank that last time out I filled with water and it rode lot better.

my 28 has a 40 gallon ballast tank placed infront of the second bulkhead under the deck and filled from exhaust water. itís night and day difference running with it filled in rough water. Settles down any flightiness when running at 75/80 in that kind of water.

Do you have twins or is it a single? Also do you fill the 40 gallons?
