If one side is heavier than the other the boat will not be horizontal and the mast not vertical depending on whether you adjusted on land or in the water. In any case the underwater boat profile will not be the same on both tacks as you will be heeled different amounts which also alters the wind power and your speed so a 5 degree rudder difference is minimal.
