Default Boat leans to port (left)

I have a 2002 maxum 3100 boat and sitting on the dock it leans to the left. Anyone else have this problem or notice this?

my 2900se year 2008 leans to port, worse when holding tank is more than 1/2 full , i have been looking at 2 options to fix the problem .
#1 put 2 more deep cycle batteries on starboard side in front of my water heater as there is an empty space about 2 ft x 3 ft. this would make the use of the space allow longer time away from shore power say for fridge etc.
# 2 , locate a proper size polyethelyne rectangular permanently mounted gas tank and tie it into my orignal tank so fuel won't get stale. this option will give me more range?? this option alittle more difficult to plumb.
