800kg? That sounds like a lot, I would expect maybe 100kg or so.

I remember the boat we used to go out on (Ellen B), an ex RNLI boat, carried over 4 tonne of ballast. When coding renewals were due, they made the skipper remove it all. Was never the same after that. Originally, the rougher it got, the more stable the boat got......
