Beach Music is listing to starboard.

I bought my Beneteau 423 new, in '07. We love her but my only complaint is that she list slightly to starbord in a perfectly still slip. We added a genset, but she is designed to handle this or should be. At 195, I can walk on the toe rail and she is stable. I wonder if it is a manufacturing problem? Since listing is a common event on a sailboat I haven't made a big deal ofit, but it bugs me and even worse , my wife. Has anyone had this problem?

Slight list to Port on our 361. We added more house batteries and a 2000watt inverter, all of course in the Port lazzerette.Talked with another 361 owner and he had the same list.

A bigger concern for me is that we sit low in the stern. Too much weight aft.

I also drag a bit in the stearn but I attribute some of it to the big walkthru swim platform which is a very good feature. Since I'm not racing her It doesn't bother me as much. Having it drag underway does slow her down for sure.

LarryandSusanMacDonald will become famous soon enough
We have a fuel tank to starboard and a water tank to port. Both about 135 gallons. Depending on how much fuel or how much water, we will have a pronounced list. Not to be confused with my 'to do' list. Which causes me to lean toward RUM.

We have an older Morgan Out Island 41 - so your problem may not have anything to do with tankage - but it's something to consider.

Lots of boats will list slightly to one side or another. It really depends on how the boat is loaded and where the heavier equipment is placed. On my boat, the refrigerator, stove, outboard engine and water tank are all on the port side...so it tends to list to port slightly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My Bene 411 the list is to starboard. The PO added a gen set on starboard side of engine. Fuel and 1 water tank are on starboard, one water tank on port. Will try to correct when I add a large house bank on port side.
