Phantom 16 (Looking for some help!)

I've recently acquired a PHANTOM 16 (1980) with a Suzuki 115 outboard.

Basically, took it out at the weekend but I found it very unstable at high speed (40MPH+).

The water was like a mirror but it kept rolling to one side once I hit 45, like it wanted to roll.. I was told that it was the wind but it wasn't about 8mph so this has thrown me.

Does this sound normal or should I be concerned?

many thanks,

Possibly. Do you think the op is into scuba diving?
