Re: Weights and Measures

Theres no doubt she sets lower than when we first got her. Soooo much stuff when you live aboard. I even raised the paint a touch when we repainted the bottom. I've kept the weight as even as I can and as low as possible. There is probably 75 pounds of lead back there and not counting the extra 45 gallons of fuel which I located back there it just seems it might be wise to remove the lead. I realize that as the fuel leaves so does the weight but I have other items that could go there.
Are these Strictly there for ballast or do they serve some other function I'm not aware of?
