    That's a different boat. I think that was the last one off the line.

    Aside from not being a very polite comment towards anyone who bought any boat, talk about tarring a whole boatbuilding industry with the same brush.
    Would you tag Fleming, Outer Reef, Nordhavn (those built from Ta Shing at least, which are arguably the best) as "Taiwanese tubs"?

    The AFT tank should always be full in your yachts design and used last. So top off the aft tank, then put the rest wherever you want. This will fix your problem.
