You might want to rethink relying only on internal ballast. The real versions of these boats weren't the most stable and models of them are even less so.

Yes yes, these were miscalculated launches, and I posted them to poke fun, but the lower your weight, the less you will need, and being able to detach 18-25 kilograms will make handling the model a lot easier too.
