I agree, the amount of weight shouldn't be enough to make a difference. I just started storing my uninflated dinghy in the v-berth of our P303 (which is about 2,000 lbs. lighter than your Pearson). The boat is around 70 lbs, and no noticible change in handling. By chance, does your boat have any modifications that moved additional weight to the bow? Like a holding or water tank under the v-berth? If so, then maybe the few extra pounds were just enough to push it over the top, so to speak.
