I am interested also.
Only two points I am aware of, Some boats also have fixed ballast, (newer macgregors have added ballast). Tanks have to be completly full and sealed for ballast to work, (otherwise free surface area can even reduce stability). The swing keel or daggerboard should also have some weight. Anything else some one feel free to chip in with experience.
