sounds like someone should stop listening to many wannabe NA's on internet forums and rethink altering his boat based on some real expert input.

The OP might find it interesting to calculate the power (fuel/money) it takes to accelerate 3000 lbs to cruising speed and keep it moving for an hour.

I would love to know how the boat motion was initially and how much 3000 lbs of lead would really change it that much. And if it did, in what way other than making the roll snappier, but how much?

Without a stability test and calculations for adding weight...I would be very hesitant to go on some other boater's word (unless they were a very well established NA) or had a boat EXACTLY the same and set up the same and had ridden it many times in many conditions.
