    Default CG on modified 24 Albemarle

    Hey Folks,
    I ve owned a 24 Albemarle 1983 since 1993.

    Several years ago we I spent a lot of time and money in addng a bracket and a single 250 Suzukie
    THe boat looks great but runs like SXXT.

    Its the old issue of always chasing my tail attepting to keep the boat on plane.
    4 bladed props and big trm tabs have not corrected this issue.

    A couple of weeks ago on a very calm day I had 4 kids bow ridding on the front rail 465 #

    The boat planned out and ran 30 mph at 4400 rpm with no issues. I was very happy

    Does anyone know of a program online or an architect that I can give some detailed information to determine how to obtain the proper CG on the boat by moving or reconfiguring the fuel tank?

    There is this software, you can download the free version http://www.delftship.net/
    It might take a while, I have found s site with some useful info concerning CG, I may have saved it, will take a look.
    Who made the bracket? Can they offer any advice/suggestions?
    I would think that since you have found you need weight forward, just start adjusting weight in the boat until you are satisfied with how it runs.......

    How about your trim tabs? I can trim my 26fter out with the tabs. It's not always the most efficient way but it works.
