Re: Breasting my fin keel? Help please.
The engine, 3 large batteries, 20 gallons of fuel and 20 gallons of water are all aft of center. So is all the stuff stored under the 1/4 birth and in the cockpit locker. The 3K lead is swept aft so it extends forward of center a good bit. The mast of course, too. I have played with balance on the hard to get an idea of any tendency and it might be a little bow heavy but you are right, not much. I think moving weight around aboard will be enough to tweak the balance. A bow boat stand would be a simple thing to add. I don't anticipate much if any activity aboard when it is dried out. The captain will be on the ground. The two rafted boats bow down would be an interesting picture.
