now that boat is in the water all the time I notice that she does not sit on her lines. She leans starboard. I kind of knew this already from the scum line and scraped barnacles above the boot stripe on the aft quarter. It’s also the same side the engine is on. Engine is also on a bracket so sheet doesn’t get caught on the motor when sailing. Could it be the weight of the engine? It’s a 4hp Yamaha where a 2.5 would be more than sufficient. Could it be something more sinister like wet foam under the starboard benches? With 2 people on that side it heels a lot even at rest. Not so much on the port side. I’m not worried too much as the boat has been in water all season every season for years. It’s not a new thing. Just wondering how to go about identifying if it’s a real problem and if so how to correct it.
