Default 382 formula listing to port when in the water

I have a 2000 382 formula that is listing about 2" to port (port side about 2" lower in water than stbd). Batteries and Fridge are on that side of the boat. Do you think it could have come that way from the factory with all that extra weight on the port side? I know that some boats of this model came with Gen and AC on the stbd side so wondering if it was designed to have the Gen on the stbd side and that is why mine is listing.

Hoping to hear from other formula owners that dont have AC/Gen to see if maybe that is just the way the boats are.

What is the best way to check to see if it is 'wet' somewhere ?

Move the fat chick to the starboard side. Problem solved.

Before moving fat chick you can reach between her legs to see if its wet.

The extra chick thing could work......but it could be water trapped in a cavity on that side. Pretty sure Formula is common for that. What about removing the fuel tank access panel for an inspection??

Thanks Mike, will pull fuel tank inspection panel to check for trapped water, although I would think I would have more mold in the cabin while covered if that were the case.

I know of several that do it, mine included. I have a gen /ac and vacuflush, and it still lists a little bit. Pretty normal for these boats for some reason.
