My 32nd P Type XXIII is my best running sub right now. I tore out the stock water tight box and installed a 3" WTC and control the bow plane for diving and the stern has an old SubTech leveler. Works like a charm!

Just saw this post. Your XXIII is sitting too high in the stern. That upper fork should be underwater when the boat is decks awash. A little weight is needed, or a little less foam.
