The only 2 reasons I can think of for your issue are the boat is severely overweight or the transom is flexing. I'd say it's time to have a good look at the boat

No it trims up I put a 24 pitch power tech 4 blade on it yesterday and it turned the prop and had a lot more lift when I would stomp it it would stay up better with that prop but loose in the tail end , the 20 pitch ran 55mph pretty straight didn't gps the 24 gonna run it again weekend
