I simply made the point in agreement with Cookie that, in the last 10 years Ive owned and operated 4 different hull configurations, and have found that weight configuration is vitally important (together with the hull design) In that ,.. even if there are shortcomings in the fit out of the boat .. where all the stuff is put .. from fuel tanks to consoles, it has a massive effect on the boats performance, with respect to its hull form, and I've sucessfully ballasted various designs to correct the various fit out problems. This has been a frustrating learning curve , and I'd like one day to be able to buy a boat that doesnt have me lifting drums of water on board to make it run right
.. My last boat for example was a quite shallow V rib .. but I stuck 2 anchors and chain in the bow locker and was one of the best riding hulls Ive had .. aided by the fact the console was set aft also
Depends ofcouse what sea you want to run in .. but I'll be interested to see how your project goes
