Hi Guys, we are in the market for a 2005-2011 48 dancer. We are going back and forth between a shaft and a pod boat. Pod seems cool but more maintenance issues. We sea trailed a 2010 yesterday and in the bow locker we discovered about 200# of sand bags. Do these boat need ballast ? The boat had auto trim tabs so wondered why the owner though it needed more weight in the front. He did have a large dinghy but that should not have through the weight off that much ? Should we stick with a shaft boat ? Thanks !
