Thanks Everyone!

Appreciate your inputs on this Nick and everyone. I wondered how they came up with these numbers (foot/pounds) and how they related to CoG relative to weight/placement. I am coming up with a method to put "modified" training wheels on a Nordkapp Classic...and found a guy on ebay that sold me some plastic coated diver belt weights (2-10s and 2-5s). These, when secured in my day hatch with wide velcro straps (attached to the hull) should provide me a way to not only get a bit more stability if I want - but also make rolling "more interesting". heh heh heh Will be a cool experiment anyway!

I imagine at least 20# on the hull (spread out) may also make it easier to static brace that boat. However, before trying it I may have Nancy standing by with video...as it could make interesting YouTube clips!
