Re: Defever leaning to port...trim tab issue?

Here's an update.....FINALLY. :-)
We hauled the boat out yesterday and the Niad tech immediately noticed that the stabilizer fins are not set properly. It's possible they were not torqued correctly and may have slipped which would cause the list upon acceleration. We are having them realigned.

Re: Defever leaning to port...trim tab issue?

I was just reading some replies... My apologies for taking so long to get back to the forum on this. :-/ I was waiting for the haul out before getting back to you. I'm so sorry. Thank you again for all of your input and support. Sorry to have left so many of you 'hanging' for a response. We're having the bottom paint done while she's out of the water so it will be a few more days before she's back online. I'll update the forum again once we determine that the fin correction solves the 'listing to port' mystery.
