Redfish,
My recommendation would be 12"x12" tabs.

Reelescape1,
We had the same problem on DIVE 1 before we put on the tabs. We solved the problem initially by trimming up the starboard motor. The RH twins always lift the starboard side of the boat-prop torque.

I had tthe same problem on my 22' with Whaler Drive. I installed a Stingray Hydrofoil for about $35. It allowed me to trim out all of the list, and get on plane quicker, and stay there with less RPM.
