I have the same problem with mine. '98 2800 single engine bravo 3. new boat for me this year and I chalked it up to a tall center of gravity boat although my RPM is about 3200 cruise at 25 mph.

One of the comments was about bow plow, where the bow is not up enough. Definitely trim the drives out, pushing the bow up. I had a similar issue with my 3200 and it wasn't until I got the bow up did it drive right/safe, definitely worth a try.

It was "bow plowing" If I trim the drives out enouht to lift the bow (more than I would think it need) I dont even need the trim tabs most of the time. Its very stabil over the side. The side effect is it start bouncing very easy and there is a hair thin limit to how much I can trim out to avoid this.
its a totally different initial settig of the drive and tabs now and I might need some more practice. With full gas tank and 5 people onboard it need minimun 22 Knots (25 Mph) to stay planing.
