i rebuilt a 78 bahama ski boat. replaced ply in transom I was real careful to drill the mountong bolts exactly where they were at higher rpm and at speed the left side of boat is about 3 in. higher and the boat pulls to the left I'm replacing steering which is really stiff. the outdrive has dolfins for planing and the skeg is broke a little off the bottom any idea why? thanks for reading

Hello, hard to say what is causing the problem without seeing the boat. You may have to resort to installing trim tabs to remedy the problem. Cool
