Re: weight distribution in Lightning
Two 20 pound coolers would be best.
Having owned a Lightning and brought a smaller cooler on board I'd say that the best place for the weight is up against the forward part of the center board trunk. This position will eat up a lot of space on the cockpit floor though.
I used to put the cooler a little further forward, closer to the mast foot. You just have to compensate a bit by sitting a little further aft.
Make sure the coolers will float!
