232 roll in turn

Postby chambers1517 » Mon Mar 31, 2014 4:33 pm

My last boat was a Caravelle 207. It was a nice boat but I always wanted an Interceptor. I bought a 232 in the winter. Yesterday was the first time I have took it out. It has dual batteries. I noticed when going into a right turn, the boat leaned hard. When going into a left turn there was not much lean. If I stood in the center of the boat while sitting still there was no lean. I thought maybe with myself and 2 batteries on the same side, that could be why. I was by myself. Is this normal for an Interceptor? I don't remember the 207 feeling this way.

I've got a 212 with only a single battery, mine seems to lean more when turning left, she almost seems vertical to the water.
I think there were couple of posts on the issue and trim tabs were way to go.

Prop torque should make the boat lean in noticeably more to Port (left). Unless you've got a Bravo 3 drive. Or, you're in Australia. Because, you know, everything is backward down there.

Interceptors lean pretty hard on turns. I feel like I could touch the windshield to the water at times if I wanted to.

Yup, put another passenger in and it will be the same both directions. I noticed the lean the first time i ran my 232 as well. Now I never really think about it. Although I sometimes I do have to ask my passengers to move around to get the boat more level when under way.

Yep! Add throttle to prevent it. Sure makes the first time riders peon their eyes and grab for a hold on something though :D

I think Swerve will have to explain what he means.
Couple of cases if beer could help with the lean. :D
