36 should be enough. Do you really need 25 lbs of weight-belt plus backplate? I assume you're diving wet with an AL80. You should only have enough weight to keep you neutral at 15' with about 300 psi in your tank.

As for bobbing around, try keeping your reg in your mouth at the surface and facing downhill in a swell. Going to a larger wing will only increase drag and my guess is you don't need it. If the swell is so big that you need to float chest high to feel comfortable, stay on the boat.
