It would seem that your boat has a weight distribution problem if the addition of sixty pounds or so of weight is causing it to noticeably hobby horse. Sixty pounds on a 12,600 lbs. boat is less than one-half of a percent of the mass of the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
