Well, I guess to "scientifically" confirm the diagnosis I'll have to remove the list completely, put more weight starboard.

What's confusing me is that if the list were to starboard that would be the equivalent, when sailing on a starboard tack, to having rail meat on the starboard side. But I guess, now that I think of it, putting meat on starboard causes the port side to dig in more....

JackDale: I haven't really sailed much in lighter winds lately, mostly 10+ knots. It's happening in 15-20 knots and 1-2 meter waves.
DrGamble: It's a CS30, so yep - light displacement boat.
SlowButSteady: I don't think my model of boat is known for it, but I guess it's possible. Love the sig, by the way!
