Maybe when the people go to bed in my forepeak they drink some of the water out of the under-berth tank to compensate?? Oh, no that wouldn't work because the water would still be up front.

Nah, I never feel any difference in my boat no matter how many people are moving around it. Maybe I'm just insensitive. I still reckon 50lbs should never make any difference to the balance of a 12000lb boat. Maybe on a Radial Laser . . . . .
