yeah, I've never been healed more than 20 degrees with this boat. However with the choppiness in the waves we encounter in lake Huron I know that rub rail gets a lot of water hitting the underside of it. We have had some bad spots in the rubber section of the rail since we bought it and I will be replacing it this weekend. While I have it off I am going to take a few days and reseal that entire deck joint thoroughly. I will let everyone know what happens.

I do like the through hull suggestion as I do have 2 on the port side but none on the starboard. I will definitely make sure those are not playing a part in this.

Thanks for all suggestions
