Hobie Hulls

I''ve got an old 16'' Hobie that rides low in the water with two adults on it. I check the hulls on a regular basis for water, and never find much. When I do I empty them out.
The boat is in decent condition considering her age.
The hulls are hollow except for some foam blocks where the trampoline frame enters the hull.
What''s her problem? What''s the solution?
Suggestions?

As long as the pontoon are dry you should have maximun flotation. Hobie 16 hulls don''t displace a lot of water so they do squat quite a bit with heavier loads, I speak from experience. I usually try moving forward a bit to get the weight centered over the most boyant part of the pontoon and then scoot back as the leeward pontoon''s nose thinks about burying.
