1 ) Keep the second anchor aft if you have one and heavy stuff in the port lasarete for balance because the water tank and batteries are in the starboard side. At list this is what I do. Keep the boat in balance always.
1 1/2 ) When you are on the boat sailing or motoring you are in the cockpit so that is when weight shift aft so look at the boat when you have a couple of people siting in the cockpit.
2) if you'll use the boat to go cruising you will motor a lot, so instead of having jerry cans on the deck would be better to have a bigger fuel tank. Wish I had thought of it when I was working in mine a few years ago.
3) If you use the boat for a week-end there is no need for a lot of chain in the anchor so get rid of some weight of the bow. Our boats are heavy enough extra ballast would be extra dead weight to push, make it slower and need more fuel or wind.
This is what I think.

Fair winds.
