Listing to starboard

Just got our 32' Chris Craft 1969 in the water, we had to reseat the chainplates due to leakage. We noticed last year the boat was listing to starboard and thought it was gear storge issues. Now with the boat empty and on our way to the hook noticed a little more to starboard.
Question is when we adjusted our shrouds back to original markings, we may have added to the misalignment of the mast and added to it. Would the mast make the boat list so. I believe they are called shrouds or stays there are three to each side, one forward and aft.
We can loosen a turnbuckle one at a time and tighten the port side on a calm day to see if it brings her over to even.
Just looking for advise.
First in the water.
