Hobby Horsing Around
I recently added a Lewmar windlass (Pro 1000H) and replaced the 20lb CQR with a 33lb Racnor. Is it possible that the additional weight at the bow has increased the boat's tendency to hobby horse? It seems that way. Pokey displaces 12.6k, so I figured this amount of additional weight up front would have a negligible impact. At this point, I still have the CQR in the anchor locker, so I've actually added a little over 50lbs.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
