Are your batteries still under the port side storage under the glove box?

Hughes- you said the tech has verified install, function of the tabs, but how is he verifying correct function at speed? Seems it would be hard to verify without putting ones self at risk. Having said that, any chance of putting a go-Pro on a stick and holding it under water along the stern rail to try to visually verify proper tab retraction? Or better yet, is it possible to remove the tabs completely and do a test drive? That would identify the tabs as being the source or not.

^^^ Could Move Surf TAB pins to Rear most HOLE, this would Pull them out of the water more and Keep them from Deploying Much if at ALL.

If it Happens with NO TABS on the Boat....It must be the HULL itself is out of Wack?...that would be Rare..

Stock prop.

I can adjust the people and ballast and straighten out the wake. The total amount of adjustments I have to make is the issue.

I agree that making sure the tabs are functioning properly while underway needs to be done.

Easiest would be, like you said, move the actuators up to the other tab hole. If it is better, than you know it is a malfunctioning actuator/tab.

It will be interesting to see this through...I bet because the boat is a deep vee that the prop is the cause. The descending blades of the prop pull (torque) more water than the ascending blade. In twin engine airplanes, the critical engine is the one with the descending blade closes to the fuselage. The vee of the boat and the torque of the prop is what I think. .02 cents Can't find the popcorn anime

Almost like torque steer in a sports car. That's and interesting take on the problem. It would be easy to test. Change the prop.
