Cockeyed running.

1987 Century Coronado, direct drive, 454. We bought a old boat to cruise around in. At speed like around 2400 rpms and up the boat leans to the left. Real sensitive to where we sit. Even with just the
driver it leans to the left. What causes this? Whats wrong? M&M

There are a number of things that can cause it to run like that. Since this is a Mastercraft forum, most of us would just be guessing. It likely had wooden stringers that could need to be replaced. It could have foam under the floor that is waterlogged causing uneven weight.

Is there a Century forum? If there is, they would probably be more helpful.

I think it's similar to this one.....1989 Coronado

Maybe trying to put some weight up front to push the front end into the water a bit more. Might help with stability (temp fix).

My x45 with the 8.1 leans a LOT when you open it up with no weight in it. It's all torque from the prop.

Or maybe just find a big gal that wants to be your permanent driver??

If it doesn't sit cockeyed in the water at the dock, it's probably not water logging and most likely rotational torque. If you look at the stern, that boat has pretty steep chine angles, which will be more prone to rotational torque lean.
Trim tabs would be a possible correction.
