Catalina 250 hull trim

Hi All,

I am a new member to this site and am looking for some feedback about my new to me 2001 Catalina 250. Is it normal for the bow to appear to ride high, especially in relation to painted water line?

At the moment the outboard is in the shop being serviced, the gas tank is nearly empty and the waste holding is nowhere near full. Forward, the water tank is full and the anchor and chain are not sure how heavy, but average.

Many thanks for any tips.

If you have a wing keel that is normal. the centerboard water ballast has a more normal set in the water
