Santana 30 , or Pimping my boat..
As you have been describing the work that you have been doing on this boat since you bought her, cummulatively you have been adding quite a bit of weight comparatively high above the waterline. These were pretty weight intollerant designs, so I would respectfully suggest that you sail the boat a bit before you add any more weight. One other word of caution, I would also suggest that adding a teak deck to what was essentially a race boat could hurt its resale value.
