Default 30' Hooks to the right

Hi guys. Since it was 37 degrees this morning and winter bench racing has begun, I have a question. Finally got some seat time in our boat and love it but noticed that once while cutting through some yacht waves/slop it suddenly caught and had a minor hook/catch to the right. I was only cruising around 50mph so no big deal HOWEVER, I was talking to the previous owner and out of the blue he mentioned that one thing that hull will do is once in a while it will hook/catch to the right unexpectedly. Given that what he described is identical with what I encountered (though his was at a much higher speed), anybody have any ideas of what I might check to try to figure this out? Its not a huge deal but is ofd that it runs and rides perfect but seems to catch and change direction a little. Thanks a ton......john

When it did it to me, I was slightly down on the K planes with just fuel in the aft tank with the forward fuel tank empty.
