    My boat is pulling really hard to the right after plain with trim all the way down, when I raise the trim it doesn't get any better. I don't have a trim tab because that motor doesn't call for one. Anyone else have the same issues?

    Corey I had a similar situation and what it turned out to be was the motor was rotating to far under the back of the boat. I found the sweet spot where it was not trimmed all the way down. Placed a few stainless bolts on the motor so it could trim all the way. It's never did since.

    I have a 2006 Nitro 280 Sport with a 150hp XR6 that does the same thing. I also found a sweet spot at about half-throttle where the motor doesn't want to trim right. I mounted a trim tab on the skeg that helped a little. Other than that, I'm holding on to the steering wheel with a firm grip.

    Will probably have a hydro steering system put in eventually... especially so if I can convince "the boss" to let me get a 225. :)
