    Default "absolutly true, I would look

    "absolutly true, I would look around the bilge for any type of drain holes down low, they could be plugged up with say, a mouse ? or debris, but yes it's definatley possible. 2 battery's on one side can make it lean, have you noticed your missing any fuel? could be fuel is leaking out one side. You could have a leak from the hull maybe you hit something and didn't know it and it got worse and is letting water in."
