Boat banking to the left?

Hey guys,

took my boat out for the first time today, ran nicely, everything fine, except when coming off a wave, she leans pretty heavily to the left before touching down..... Any ideas why this would be?! i took the plug out of the hull at the stern when i was back on the shore, and there was no water in the hull cavity.

Cheers,

Simon

Assuming you dont have too much weight on the left which happens .. Its the torque from the outboard .. you dont mention anything about your set up ? is it a big engine ?

I think I may have the same thing happen but our prop does need a small repair.
we have a 115 opti on a 5.3 destroyer so could be the power.

I thought the 5.3 Destroyer was rated at 90Hp!! So yeah most probably is the power.

Prop torque as said. Both my Humber and the Osprey do it too. A quick tweak to starboard on the steering just as you leave the water sorts it out

Sorry guys - didn't mean to start a row! So yes - it was on my 5.4m tornado with a yamaha 90, I had the boat laden evenly and even moved the spare fuel tank to starboard to provide me with ballast. I boathandle for my diver mate who has a Humber destroyer of the same size with same engine and have never noticed this, so would be surprised if it was down to engine power? I appreciate your help.....but let's not fall put about it?

leaning to the left :)

hi, some old posts talk about this - the destroyers are very prone to leaning to the left if the engine is allowed to over trim inwards, trimming out a bit helps a huge amount, I'm guessing the tornado is doing the same??

some brilliant evenings to be out in the boats just now

I had exactly the same problem, and trimming resolved it. Just so I didn't frighten myself to death, I put a "trim pin" is that what its called, anyway the pin that you can place through the holes, underneath the outboard to stop the engine trimming all the way in, its never done it since.

I knew someone with the 5.1 Tornado with a 90 and it pulled badly on reentry to the water from prop torque. Judicious throttle and trim control helps a lot.
