Factors influencing boat balance

There are many variables that must be answered that contribute to an answer to that question. for example: What color is the bottom painted, what shape is the bottom in, what color hair does the blonde on deck really have, what shape is her bottom. I digress. If you look at the change in the shape that the boat presents to the water when healed, it is not to hard to figure out where weather helm comes from. It will be fatter on one side (unlike the blonde).
