on the drivers side on the outside of the boat is where that boat vents air when the ballast is filling. I'd follow the vent hose down to the tank if possible and make sure its connected and clamped tight. It sounds like that hose isn't connected and tank is possibly draining into the hull because of it. The gates should be closed when the switch says closed. Right now your with your system not working properly every time you stop the boat the ballast is filling up and every time you take off it is draining itself. The system works by flooding and gravity like this: Gates closed no water enters the tanks. To fill tanks stop boat open gates, water floods into tanks air is vented out the side, once full close gates to trap water and weight boat. To drain tanks open gates and come up to speed, after about 2 min tanks would be gravity drained and you would want to close gates so that when you stop the boat wouldn't take water in again. You need to make sure that theres power to those switches and power from the switches to the gates.
