Cool unbalanced weight, advice needed

Here is my problem... on my Grampian 26, I always seemed to have too much weight at the stern. The waterline was off by about 2 inches. Now, I added a spare outboard engine since I do not have total confidence in my 1978 saildrive and of course it added another inch to the problem. I could move a few things and stow more weigth at the bow but I would hate to add unnecessary weight just to balance the waterline.

What are the dangers/inconvenience of an unbalanced weight? Any suggestion?
