I noticed that my Rinker v170 leans to the left. Has anyone else encountered this? If so what did you do to fix it? I’m new to boating.

Do you mean pulls to the left or is it listing, floating lower in the water?

Which side is your battery on? Weight distribution is a significant factor on a 170.

It lists in the water to the left. Also I encountered a new problem. The steering all of a sudden got real stiff and harder to turn. There is no power steering so I’m thinking something with the steering wheel or cable.

Or your power steering pump or actuator
