Anyone Else here have a 456?

I Think I need to add some ballast to the rear of my boat. She is a little heavy in the bow. I have been told that some for 456s came with lead ballast in the Stern.

Most concern to me, is that rainwater does not always drain off of the side decks. It collects unless the bow fuel tank is empty.

Hi there.

I have a 423 Classico and find i need to keep water tanks full to even trim.

Boat looks best with saddle tanks empty.

She can look bow down depending on loading.....
