Filling water tanks while on the hard

Getting ready to go in and wondering if filling the tanks (about 200 gals on a 26000 lb boat) is a bad idea while still out due to weight moving? Seems like it wouldn't make a big difference but curious whether others have done this... I'm all blocked up with stands etc at the moment and dealing with this now may be easier than after everyone is at the dock....

Never found it to be an issue. My boat was just slightly smaller than yours in displacement.

Don't ask if you can't handle it

I have always wondered the same thing. But since I wondered about about it I decided it was just safer to not fill them till in the water.
