Marmot did not confuse anybody that understands what CG is really about, your earlier post stating it moves forward (away from added weight) and your latest post stating it moves back towards the weight confuses everybody. That poor CG does not know if it is coming or going. Yes the handling will change but there is a big difference between CG and trim. I built many commercial fishing vessels and due to the requirements of their licenses which required them to be a measured length from the rudder stock to the forward perpendicular a lot were built with a lot of hull aft of the rudder(s), a registered 10 meter or under fishing vessel could have an overall length of nearly 14 meters. Yes the handling sucked in a following sea but that extra length was required for their gear.
