I have a 2004 Sunesta 274 and it has a definite list to the starboard side when it is floating at rest. Are there any known issues that cause this list or is it really just a weight balance thing? It does seem that most of my heavy items are on the starboard side like the two batteries, my onboard battery charger, my two subwoofers, my amps, and my tools in front of the helm. Some of this is by design since these things are located in the compartments that they were designed for. I also don't fill the water tank that is located on the port side next to the engine. I suppose that the extra weight of the filled water tank could help as a counter balance but I hate to tow that extra weight if I am not going to use it (we don't use the faucet in our sink and we pretty much trailer our boat everywhere). Another possibility is trapped water in the hull. I don't think that it is trapped water as the boat is stored out of the water on its trailer (in Arizona so it is very dry) and is only in the water maybe a total of 3 weeks out of the year and I pull the plug every time when I leave the lake. Maybe I should move my batteries and on board charger to the port side in the engine bay to help redistribute some weight. Let me know if you have any thoughts, comments or suggestions on my listing issue. I appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
