PSC 34 Tricky Oil Dipstick

My local yard mechanic says (A) is probably the right answer, do you agree?

Maybe due to the angle at which my Yanmar 3JH2E is mounted in my PSC 34, when I check the oil level, the reading shows half way between the low and high marks on one side of the dipstick, and if I flip it over, it shows a 1/2 Qt too full on the other side of the dipstick. It does this every reading. Which is the right answer:

(A) The indication between the low and high marks
(B) The indication showing 1/2 Qt to much oil
