It's a hydro, they do that.
You didn't mention when where and how but I already know the answers. If it's cavitating on the launch, you are probably just setting the boat in the water and hitting the throttle. WRONG! This puppy has to be tossed into the water throwing it level a few inches above with the throttle squeezed a little. #2 which involves slowing down then trying to get back up to speed and it sucks air. Can't do that either, it's not made to do that with the prop that comes with it. You pretty much have to run it fast the majority of the time. Slowing down for Chicks to check out is a no-no. Sorry, but it's the nature of the beast.
Betcha bought it 'cause it was the coolest looking boat at the Hobby Shop or because it said Miss Bud on it. I'm not trying to be a total jerk if that's what you're thinking (or worse) but too often it holds true.
Try these tips out and it should help you.

Let me know if this solves your problem. I got into launching all of my boats with this technique. It puts less stress on the driveline plus if your boat throws a roostertail you don't get showered too badly. Some of my boats had a nasty habit of flipping over backwards by not doing it this way.
