Re: Increasing flotation

Looks like it was designed with short (or low) freeboard. It looks like it's low by design





Draft (max.) 3.50' / 1.07m Draft (min.) 2.00' / 0.61m
Disp. 3200 lbs./ 1452 kgs. Ballast: 1200 lbs. / 544 kgs.
SA/Disp.: 16.92 Bal./Disp.: 37.47% Disp./Len.: 154.2

Suggest taking the trailer to a scale.. then the boat and trailer. Do some some simple math. Only way is to lighten the boat or it's contents. Also, when you get the boat "lighter" May have more heel when sailing.

Adding a longer stern (sugar scoop) could help but then you would be getting into design issues.
