Could this be the cause?

Ongoing issue with my searider in most conditions, particulary when airbourne! - with it leaning to port

Today however I may have found the cause, I got a roll of decking stuff at the last boat jumble I went to and spent today making sections for the floor, did a rear section and cut a side peice for where the my feet go, got it all nicely shaped and fitted, and used this one as a template flipped over to make an exact copy for the other side, to my horror I have about an inch gap on the starboard side and only about little gap on the port side which suggests my console is not totally central and could be the cause of the leaning, and not the prop,engine position,dolefins, weight distribution etc -

The people who put the console in for me are really nice people and did a brilliant job on the work i asked them to do, if this is the cause then do you reckon I should take it back and ask for it be corrected? - any thoughts suggestions appreciated -

couple of pics attached to show what I rabbiting on about -

Nope, do it yourself, that way you know it will be done properly. How is the console held in ? and which way does she lean over ? not convinced this is the cause of the problems though.

Will a skint student strapped to the hull be an effective anti-fouling option??

sorry pete, yeah she leans over to port side quite heavily a lot of the time, even in near perfect conditions, I find my self trying to compensate by sitting differently to correct it without much luck - Ian Austin will tell you whats its like at speed!
