Default My 2700scr is tilting to the right in the dock!!!!!

Hi folks, I need a little advice please, I just bought a 1993 2700scr, and today while walking away from the boat, I noticed that the boat was 2-3 inches lower on the right side . Is this normal? or should I be worried?
Thanks

Hi scooby
yep..that's pretty much normal...find out what is located on the port and stbd side...determine if the batt's can be moved or maybe shift the weight some....may need to add some water in the water tank to level the boat out....if your tanks are empty, that may be the problem....

Also remember your waste tank is on the left so if you have any water in it it also adds to the tilting.

Also if your on the boat by yourself you notice that your weight evens it out. Not a big deal but like SP said if it really bothers you a few storage items can be moved that straightens her right out.

Mine leans to the right or left, depending if the water tank or waste tank is full. It is ususally one or the other. Water on port side, waste on starboard on my '98.
