on my water ballast the only thing i have noticed is that it is a generally light boat. 1100 lbs dry and about 2600 ballast filled. at anchor it will tend to swing a little more than say a full keel. i keep the board up at anchor with rudder down to prevent keel bump. however, my friends boat has a wind vaning device that looks like a mini sail to keep from swinging at anchor. those are just small drawbacks. i can go anywhere and haul out and splash myself and tow it with my VW Tiguan. weve talked about bigger boats but then it comes in to the channel restrictions and higher costs of yard fees and storage. for the sailing i do, which is day, overnights and occasionally up to five days this time of year solo, i dont need anything bigger.
