Default 1996 mako 19 bow heavy and won’t self bail

I have a newly bought 96 mako 19 with 150 yamaha 2 stroke. I put a ton of money into it and whenI put it in the water it sits bow heavy. Any ideas or thought would be appreciated.
It does t self bail and there is always water on the deck

If on a trailer , jack that thing way bow up with the plug out and leave it that way for a few days. See how much water comes out if it.
You can use blocking , get bow high.
Chock the wheels.

Hard to say on a keyboard without pictures of your situation and how you store it.

Default Trapped water

I also believe water to be the culprit. Big question is how the heck do I get it out? I had it on trailer that was jack up pretty high. I believe this was a pre existing condition. Bildge is dry. Water never makes it back even after using it.

Keep posting , when you have ten or more posts over a few days , you can attach pictures.
I wouldn’t make an inspection cover, but buy a gasketed pie plate . But pictures would help first.
Picts of boat in water, deck picts, etc.

If there's forward bulkheads without drains it'll hold water no matter how high you lift it. You might have to open up the deck to see if that's the case and also if it's full of waterlogged foam.
