Re: Crealock 37
The canoe stern provides limited volume. The lack of volume translate into a lack of bouyancy when compared to other boats with more truncated sterns.
When you add weight to the stern, the actual waterline climbs above the design waterline and the boat "squats" into the water.
The boat has lots of storage in the rear 1/4 of the boat. Quarter berth serving as a garage, the cockpit lockers and the propane locker. In cruising mode these can end up being filled with a lot of heavy gear.
