water ballast question

Just wondering if its ok to have 26 macgregor boat water ballast full at all times.
The more I read, the more I find that macgregor boats are too light.
So if I wanted it permanently docked at the marina and live aboard, can I just keep her water ballast full all the time or would it do some damage to the boat having it inside all the time???
Any recommendations? I just do not want the boat bouncing all over the place when there is a little wind in Tampa Bay.
Havent bought the boat yet, just a part of my research.
Thanks guys.
