Weights and Measures

I'm not sure where this question belongs but I'll start with "general". There is quite a bit of lead weight in the back of my boat near the rudder post or sleeve. I am guessing they are some sort of factory ballast. As we are live aboard cruisers the amount of added on weight is incredible when I start to think about it. Dingy, davit, outboard 4 scuba tanks, extra propane, my wifes shoes. It goes on and on. If they are just ballast could I leave them in storage. Even if their location, which is low in the back is an issue, It would be easy to move some heavy stuff back there. I've added over 200 pounds down there in fuel alone (I am aware that is somewhat temporary). Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance
