I too have the lead pigs for trimming reasons in my boat, but my "tenderness" issues have more to do with a light load and improperly placed water tanks hanging from the side decks. Breaking those into 4 x 50 gallon tanks, converting an empty 40 gallon SS tank below the engine into a working diesel "day tank" (post-filtration) and moving 4 x 150 lb. 8D AGMs under the saloon floor just aft of the mast will, I suspect, aid matters. I also suspect I will be reducing or losing those lead pigs.

My point? Think of where your tankage is before you go altering the boat. The difference between me sailing with empty tanks and full is significant.
