fuel starvation on starboard tack

Just purchased clipper 311. Motor sailing on starboard tack motor faltered and stopped. Motor had no problem on port tack. Tank one third full (despite fuel gauge showing more than half full).
Read post on net that this might be caused by fuel tank feed pipe positioned too far on starboard as is large square tank. Keen to learn if reposition of fuel pipe to centre of tank likely to solve problem
Thanks Tony
