My boat always had a slight starboard list, so I just always kept a little more fuel on the port side

The only thing on the port side that was after market are 2 x 8D house batteries but I am not sure that would cause the listing. Does anybody have a similar model boat? Is this just the way the boat is and its weight distribution?
Those batteries are heavy that is for sure, somewhere around 150 lbs each or more depending on the capacity..... This leads to my question. How far are they mounted from the boat centerline/keel ? The further away the more the effect.
Who is this Rube Goldberg ?? Is he a boater ??

Best not to use wives in this situation, could make for awkward math.
