Yep. I guess I didn't look very closely.
I'd keep them that way unless you struggle in reverse.

NXT drives like to surface same as #8 drives, I’m not sure but from the photo it seems to me that those drives are sitting too low, this could be part of your problem, I understand that you can’t go higher with these drives, to begin these are massive drives for 33 foot boat...
and heavy as hell - I know, so the hull has a crap load of STERN weight. My guess balance is off in the boat as well - too much stern weight -- too far back.

my guess with these 3 sets -- the engines, drives , assemblies / boxes - what 3000 lbs alone ---- maybe tad more basically in a 31 ft hull. This hull came from the 31 with an addition of a built in swim platform and then 2 steps added. Man thats alot of stern weight in small 33 length boat. Really not even a true 33 ft boat

To be clear I am not knocking the boat at all but IMO the STERN weight especially in rough waters nor anywhere else might not be helping you out either

I built a 33 avs with700 N/A number 5s we had to run the prop shaft 1inch below the bottom to get the boat to plane. but the 2 boats I built with NXTs we had to get the prop shaft above the bottom because the gear case design created way to much lift on the stern. the first thing I would try would be 4 blade props but you may have to move the drives up higher on the transom and cut out the bottom of the swimstep not that big of a deal a lot scarier looking than it is doing. What gear ratio are you running ? I might have something you can try just cover the shipping.
