Removing ballasttank Ring 21C

I'm thinking about removing my ballasttank in the nose of my Ring 21C. The pick-up and tubes are allready remover (while mounting a new transom). I thought, when I remove it, i will get a little more bowlift..

Someone advisesnor experience?

Why take it out ? If you have it use it.

If it were mine I would re-instate the whole set up, pickup and dump.

Then you can run a prop with more cup to allow more trim out and balance the boat with an adjustable amount of bow weight to best suit the sea conditions and balance the C of G. More bow lift in flat seas may be good, but how often do you have just flat seas. Much better to be able to keep going in the rough when all around you are pointing skyward and you can just charge through.

On seconds thought, I indeed don't gonna remove it. It will lose his originality for probably 1km/h profit. I'm not running that of at WOT, so I leave it as it is now. Maybe in the future, i will place some trimflaps if I need them.

I've not decided to replace a pick up or dump because the transom has been replaces 1,5 year ago. How less hole in the transom, the better in my opinion..
