I've always heard this. Something about the gas tank placement and if it's empty it will roll pretty hard to the side. I'm normally pretty full when I go deep but I'm curious... Is this true and if so elaborate on it for me.:rockn:

Yes it dos roll easier too the left side when the tank is low on flue. Do to the tank being on the right side. All that's happening is your displacing the water (like a bout dose) making it more buoyant on that side.

Without the weight of the fuel your tank is very bouyant. Not to get scientific but when a rigid object is forced into water it has to out weigh the amount of water it displaces in order to sink, if not the force of the water it displaces is to great and the object will float. An empty gas tank is essentially a big bouy strapped underneath your brute.
