I have recently bought a W32 - "Sixpence". The surveyer thought that she was a little down at the bows. I thought she could benefit from altering the trim too: the water on the side decks pools about midships rather than emptying completely at the scuppers; the bilges could do with a little more tendency to move water aft to the pump; the prop. came out of the water a bit in some lumpy seas.

I have (temporarily) moved the bower anchor chain from the anchor locker right aft, and that seems to have helped a bit. What would be the best way of adding some ballast aft?

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
