While standing it is true with the balance, but normaly the prop should lift the starboard side a little, while moving. The overweight to starboard side should balance the torque. But i do not know how much it has to be.

It LOOKS a lot more than 4" probably cos an SR is so narrow.

I am usually not as green as i am cabbage looking.

yesterday i have been on river for final tune up. I ll go to Croatia the next weekend with the Searider.
The Anode was only a little better . The steering is pulling to starboard.
During this week, i ll move the console to middle and then it has to work.
