Thanks for the information,
mine is 8.5 with the engines and fuel tank towards the rear with clients going forward. Seems to be heavier than mine! (Tornado 8.5) 2600 kilos apprx.
The reason I asked was that when I bought it almost everyone from the traditional boaty fraternity in the locality stated she would be stern heavy and require ballast, since delivery I have been either too ill or too broke to launch but I guess this weekend we'll find out. My weight distribution is identical in location, thanks for the information.
