Question re Mamba 8.6

Have been paddling this boat a lot on easy cl 3 stuff and it does great, very fast and easy to hold lines and boof small ledges.However as soon as I hit easier flat water, the boat keeps spinning on me and is hard to keep directional. Is this a function of seat position?Its the rr outfitting and I am one hole back of center. My wt 205-210 lbs.
Appreciate any help with this .

Don't know for sure, but I have noticed that more forward a boat is trimmed, within reason, the better it will track.
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).
