Welcome aboard

How much lean are you talking about and does it move back and forth quickly or more based on where you are positioned?

My 2400 has I slight lean to starboard with just me at the helm and I can use trim tabs to correct or I can stand in the centerline. However while running it will change if I have wind or current hitting me broadside.

This is expected behavior. When you alter speed or drive trim (especially both), the trim tabs will need to be re-tuned. changes in tide, current, wind and wave angle will also require re-tuning the tab's attitude. It is what it is. Get used to working trim tab, drive trim, wheel and throttle as part of overall and regular boat handling.
