any X-25 owners with this problem? certainly noticable with boat at rest in calm water; at least 1 to 1 1/2 inches; of course I'm careful with weight distribution; noticed it on first lake test when boat was virtually empty; frustrating; previous MC's X-10 and X-15 sat perfectly level; 6.2 l. Ilmor

I purchased a 2010 X-25 and am having a bit of the opposite issue with the boat listing the port (steering affected as well). I figured it was just a weight issue due to the storage in the boat and the items I have in it, but if you find a solution please let me know.

uh... pretty easy to fix guys, put some weight on the opposite side your listing to. its a boat - will never be perfectly balanced. I'm guessing this boat will be pretty sensitive to the weight distribution as well (as its a deep V)

so in other words just throw all the fat people on one side....hahaha.

I think my listing problem is primarily due to the fact that 80% of the boat storage is on the Port side. Ultimately i would much rather have a small problem with weight distribution than give up the storage space.

thanks for the comments; I think it's reasonable to expect the boat to sit level at rest; yes, with the deeper V it will be more prone to listing while underway; guess I'm just fussy; I love the boat; I'll just tilt my head when I look at it out on the buoy!

I have a 2011 X-25 with over a 100 hrs already and I have noticed that it will list when the ice chest that is just behind the driver is full. Nothing to worry about just put more stuff on the port side. If you are a big boy you will notice that the boat will be effected by that as well.

I kind of like the fact that it list on the starboard side because my wife and I both surf on that side and it makes a good clean wake for us with out needing a lot of extra ballast.

125 hours on our 2011 X25 and I have never noticed this.

I am not having listing issues with my 2011 X25 either.
