Question for physics/nautical engineer major

NDK seats can be hard on the buttocks. I've had to install a seat pad in my Greenlander Pro. I note in challenging wind/wave conditions that my stability is compromised a little by this addition of approximately 1 1/2 cm. So, I wonder how much lead placed under the seat might be required to lower the center of gravity to near the original position. I weigh 80 kg. (Changing out the seat is a real, but more remote option at this point.)
