Hi all. Some thoughts on loading. When delivered unladen the SM anti fouling line is high in the bow and low in the stern. Given the duck tail stern with low floatation compared to the full and powerful forward sections it would seem the designers gave us a very strong hint that we should load heavy items forward in the anchor locker, the two big foredeck lockers, the two under berth lockers in the fore cabin, and other storage areas forward of the keel, while reserving the after storage areas for light weight items.
I cannt believe the antifoul line is an error maintained for the entire production run of the SM. In which case it would seem the designers expectations are as I set out above.
