Hi gang,

I've noticed that in the slip, our Yankee Dolphin lists to port, and it's pronounced. comparing how much bottom paint is visible , it's about a 6-8" difference from one side to the other out of the water. It is not resting on the bottom. We don't have anything major on the port side (besides sink).

Anybody have same issue or any salty dogs want to offer up some info? Thanks!

Hi Mike
Did this just happen? Or, is this the first time you noticed it? My first thought is - When did you have the bottom painted last? Measure the distance from your toe rail to the top edge of the bottom paint at 3-4 points. It should be the same on both sides. If not, then the bottom paint line is the problem.

it didn't just happen, I noticed it last season. I just painted the bottom 2 weeks ago and it was launched yesterday. I will do the measuremenets, good idea!
