Any weight you add needs to be as low down and close to the centre of the boat as possible. Yeah, I know close to the centre will not help trim.
But adding weight can be a real problem. We carry an extra couple of tons down in the keel
and it really kills our light air performance.
I would be looking to move batteries as suggested above. Also check to see if the engine
can be easily moved back, even a few inches.
Finally, double check that you have not actually corrected the trim of your boat with the changes. I removed about two tons from our boat during the rejuvenation and it appeared as though the bow was too high. But double checking with a tape measure showed that over time the water
line had been redrawn to reflect the poor trim of the overladen fit out and was now much improved.
