You could use this weight to help correct trim.
I will defer to your expertise. After all, I think you personally know the designer of this marvelous little ship. While looking at it Tuesday morning I will make it a point to take this into consideration.

While your here, may I ask you, do you think the I-28 is capable of a voyage from the Bahamas to the BVI? Or did you design the boat for strictly costal sailing? I really like the I-28, but I am struggling here.
