Despite your handle, this does not sound like the Ranger 26 that I'm familiar with.. knowing more about your boat would help.
I doubt that 100 lbs would make a significant difference to the behaviour of your boat, and you may well stress the daggerboard system somewhat.
If it's a new-to-you boat with older sails, you may be amazed at the improvement that would come with a fresh set.
