It should be pretty easy to figure out. It's just a matter of what's been added to the boat, how much it weighs, and where it's located.

Our IP 380 didn't list when we bought it, and there was about 2-1/2" of gelcoat showing between the bottom paint and the boot stripe. After loading her up with long distance cruising equipment and provisions, including additional batteries, she listed a bit to port, and I had to extend the bottom paint up to the boot stripe. I found I could pretty much offset the list by putting all the canned goods in the forward lockers in the setee.

Same here, much more acurate than a water tank gauge. As Hud says the list can be taken out by the way you load it.

This assumes of course that the boat is leaning over rather than the mast. We looked over a Jeaneau Sunrise 35 a couple of years ago. Bit worn out and a mast with a perfect "S" shape when you looked up the sail track.

- - If the bilges are dry with no evidence of "high tide" lines from being flooded than most likely it is equipment replacement. In the older boats the big equipment was much heavier than the new replacement. I replaced a 40 year old genset weighing 1,000 lbs with a modern (same output) genset that only weighed 400 lbs. I had to move quite a bit of other heavy equipment from the starboard side to the port side to try to balance the boat again. But it still list just a little under 1 degree.
- - As others have said take a thorough look and try to see why it is listing. Also, look at the mast, it might be out of column from a lousy re-rigging job and is causing the boat to list or appear to list. Get a 5 or 6 foot carpenter's level and place it athwartships at the stern - mechanically making sure that it is even with toe rails or deck edges. Measure to see if the list is in the hull or in the rigging. 2 exactly equal strings from the top of a broom pole to the ends of the level and then place the base of the broom pole exactly in the center of the carpenter's level, will give you a true perpendicular to line up with the mast to see if it is in column.
