    Hi

    Is there anyone that could help me with calculations and ideas about how to get better lift
    In the stern of my boat, did build a new swim platform for the boat so it got a little heavy
    Did also build a box under swim platform for lift, but it doesn’t lift stern enough .
    So would need someone with knowledge of construction and calculation to help
    me with this! It’s a 50 ft Sea Ray

    CofG has moved way aft - move water/fuel/people forward, even if temporarily.
    Most folks throw all the junk in the stern.
    Sketch/materials would be good
