I think having it weighed is the easiest way to see if water logged

If there is that much water in that boat to cause such a severe list, that boat would flip as soon as the OP left his slip.

Got to be the bracket. Motor too far back.

Look at the pics that are in the thread. It shows the correct set-up for that model boat.

Also the bilge pump is not working if there is water in the boat.

I don't agree. If there is foam or wood, could just be soaked through and very heavy....waterlogged doesn't necessarily mean there is standing water in the hull sloshing around

It is awfully out of wack but the service people who installed the engine doesn't know why and per proline the engine weight is within specs

The engine was a 115 20 yr old 2 stroke.

I hear ya. But according to the OP's posts, the boat is dry. But did he test for water correctly?

The boat was re powered with a heavier motor, and they probably installed the wrong bracket,

According to what he is posting, the bracket, motor is the problem.

At one time the boat sat level according to the bottom paint.

The big question is. Where was the bottom paint before and after the re power???
