Where is the 18's balance point? The 16 is at the shroud pins, but not sure about the 18, seems like it is just forward of the daggerboard slot.

Thanks!

Right around the shroud anchors. It really depends though if you have the sails up, rudders on, etc. as tha will change the position of the center of gravity. If you have the sails down, you can fine tune it by moving the sails around on the tramp forward or aft.
