Re: List to Starboard

Lots oif boats list a bit. It really doesn't matter much once you are under sail but it can be annoying in the slip. Do what you can with what gear you have aboard to correct it and if this doesnt work you can add some trim ballast. I found trim ballast under the galley stove on a brand new Sabre at the Annapolis Boat show.

Determine how much ballast you need by having a friend stand on deck and moving outboard until the list is corrected. My seat of the pants guess for your boat will be about 500 ft. lbs. (weight in pounds times distance in feet) to correct one degree. So if you need a 3 degree correction you will need 1,500 ft. lbs. of ballast or 428 lbs. of lead 3.5' off centerline. But first I would do everything possible to fix the list without adding weight.
