are you talking about the constant moving of the bow from left to right??...
that's called bow wander's the physics of the engine and stern drive trying to push the bow out of the way...
here's what I do...put your tabs all the way down....also the drive.....then as the bow comes from one side to the other...move the steering wheel slightly in the opposite direction to correct the takes practice but you can keep the bow fairly straight ......

it's nothing to do with the boat.....hope this helps...
