RE: Ship stability issues
I haven't looked at it, but it likely has too high of a CoM (center of mass), meaning it is must stable upside down. You can fix it by adding a large keel, decreasing weight at the top, or using strong PIDs, though natural stabilization is always better. You can also use hydrofoils on the bow, rear, and either side set to 45* where the water line should be, if your vehicle will be always moving. I'll check it out tonight if I have the time.

RE: Ship stability issues
Remove the propellers that you're using for stability, and replace the wooden beams they're mounted on with lead.

Edit: You've built the ship sideways. Use the rotate 90 degrees option when you load it to get it facing the right way. Seems to work okay like that. Also set the turning propellers at the back to reverse.
