sticking my nose in

I just bought my first Hobie (an old '71 Hobie 14). I wiegh about 190 lbs (I don't know the kg, I'm a slow American) and have been sailing it in fresh water (less buoyancy than salt). I have noticed that the hulls ride pretty low in the water when I am just getting going and I have dug the nose of the leeward hull into the water once already when the wind was up. You mentioned you had some thoughts on preventing this and I would love to hear them.
