See my answer to Denise. I've not noticed hobbyhorse pitching with only the 60 pound previous Honda and three people in the cockpit. I tend not to be sailing when the weather gets difficult, and unless I got caught, the biggest waves I get are about 18 inches, not really enough for hobbyhorse pitching. But I can move ballast to midships to balance if necessary.
