Our Bentley sits deeper on the port side, as the fuel tank is located at that rear corner of the boat.

I was a bit concerned at first about the possibility of water in the toon (bought it used) then realized that the bottom paint on the port toon goes up a bit higher, so it’s always been like that.

It seems to level out fine when underway.
Maybe they will provide "pin striping" to hide the difference.

Well, if you can’t tell, it doesn’t bother me, but it is less than the two inches noted by the OP.

After all; “physics is physics.”. :biggrin2
