On my 2015 TI, the port ama rides with its bow about 2" higher than the startboard. On starboard tack, the stern of the port ama goes a bit deeper than when on port tack and is not parallel to the WL like the starboard ama. I can't tell if it makes any difference at all when sailing, but the OCD in me wants them both to be the same. Ideas on how to fix?

My 2017 TI has similar characteristics, though my port ama rides level and the starboard one rides a little bow down/stern up. This is most obvious when sitting in still water. I've been unable to determine the cause and can't detect any detrimental effects on performance - just noticeable that's all. Perhaps subtle and unique features of the roto-moulding process...

I finally figured this out. The reason is that my amas are not at all identical. One has a bit more curve and the other is flatter with less rocker. I wonder which one is right?
