So, what do you all think... I would estimate that my boat rides at a 20 degree angle between port and starboard and probably a likewise 20+ degree angle between bow/stern when I'm surfing.

I have a direct drive (Supra Sunsport) and I run about 1400 pounds of ballast concentrated on the surf side and stern. I'm usually within a few inches of my rub rail at rest and will run water at the rub rail about 8 to 10' from the stern along the surf side of the boat.

I am thinking that I'm probably still okay. I took a look at my oil pressure last night while surfing and I was probably 45 to maybe 50. that seems reasonable.

I've also heard recommendations of running a little extra oil (1/2 a quart or so) to compensate for the lean.

Any thoughts?
