I have a 2001 PS209 and it leans to the drivers side while cruising even with only two people in the boat. Does any one have any suggestions as a fix or reasoning behind it? Also, where on-line is a good place for replacement parts such as hinges for the glove box? --Thank you.

the rotational direction of the propellor will tweak towards the drivers side, your boat should balance pretty well w/ two people, maybe some weight under the spotters seat w/ some lead brick or similar.

Or use your heavy person as spotter, and light person as driver, i know you want to drive but have a kid or a wife?

You can solve it with a water ballast bag, a pair in individually adjustable trim tabs on the transom.
