Like Lucc suggested -

Im planning 1/3 of the overall ballast for internal ballast, plus 2/3 of the weight as a lead bulb on an external keel fin.
Also a removeable rudder extension is planned for better sailing abilities.
Do you think this will be apropriate?

Dear Mr. Jerry Todd,
thanks for these great videos!
I will be trying not to go down that road.
As soon as the lower hull is laminated and watertight, I will do intensive floating tests to get the exact volume and CG - as these datas are not included in the plans I have.
In the description it only says: about 20,000 tons displacement for the 1:1 scale.

Dear Mr.Yancovitch,
would you please be so kind to tell me/us the overall dimensions of your hull - length, width and heigth - and how much ballast you are using to get to the CWL?
Also the weight you achieved for your empty hull without any rigging if possible?

Also these datas mentioned above for the H.M.S Surprise in this forum would be of great help.
