He did say it was already offset

The engine is already off set from factory
silly question...which way have they offset it and how much ??

Our Humber's o/b appears central when you look at the transom cut out, but when you look at the whole transom the cut out itself is offset.

Post some pics of the of the outboard position on the boat, that will everyone help to identify your problem.

I had a similar problem with my last rib, I needed to shift the outboard up a hole or two and also I had to sort weight distribution in the boat. Extreme but I shifted my console by a couple of inches as well.

If your setup is all factory standard I would have thought if it was all s=down to weight distribution.

That's all great information thank you all.. I will be at the rib on Thursday to do some working out. First thing will be to fit my refurb prop. The raise the engine as the cavitation plate is lower than the bottom of the boat. I will raise it to the last setting just above the bottom of the boat. I will give it a try like that. Then if needed I will make snap adjustments to the anode. I will also look in to the batterie as I have 2 and 1 is to port and the other is centered. Loads to look at but sounds like it's fixable.. I will keep you all posted.. Oh, I still have the Ribeye A600 if anyone is interested in buying it 17,500 with Yamaha 100hp 2007 with trailer 280 hrs ish. Thx again

Hi All

I wanted to thank you all for your input but have some news that will make your eyes water..

I lifted the engine, changed the none return valves to make sure water wasn't sneaking in, reconditioned my prop, all of which didn't make any difference.

So i thought i would take a break and work out why the bilge pump wasn't working. SO while i was under the consul looking at fuses i spotted that the second battery is smaller than the case it was in and had shifted to port by 4 + inches. i pushed it to starboard and wedged a plastic water bottle to stop it moving and guess what!!!!!!!!!! yes if fixed the lean!! Just that small shift in the batter made such a difference.

So no my problem is i have the bilge pump working on manual but wont work on auto.. any ideas..

PS. don't take the micky out of me about the leaning to port and the battery. i feel a bit like a twit.

That is important to know on beforehand. Because than it's not possible to place a counter clockwise engine on the boat...
I also have a Humber but the transom cut is in the center, and i have a counter clock wise engine, whithout off-set

The float is probably toast. Start checking the wiring with a volt ohm meter or a test light. Depending on the type of float you have will determine the tests from there. A regular float can just be lifted to test. Solid state requires a "connection" like water normally does between the contact surfaces.

Heck no I am PROUD of you

Simple solutions can sometimes be the hardest to find. I was a professional auto tech for much of my career, and can tell you stories...you did good!

That sounds odd, surely a 4 inch shift in a battery location cant make such a difference on a boat that size, something aint right ? Maybe its a combination of things, any water trapped in hull ?
