We have a slight list to port and it drives me crazy. Like stated above, everything on our boat is on the port side.
Galley stove w/oven, refridge, & microwave. Than I went and added two additional house batteries. The most convenient spot was in the lazzeret, which of course is on the port side.

I buy a bunch of cases of soda and water and place them on the starboard side (you can substitute beer of course). We drink them as needed and replace when needed, by the time the season ends we are usually back to our original slight list to port.

This helps, but of course it also adds more weight and drag to the boat.
