It’s an idea that’s been tried and can work. You gain some righting moment. But the boat weighs more, and is slower. The extra weight also makes it more difficult to move the boat ashore.
Selling the boat in the future maybe problematic.

But if the boat is going to be seaworthy it requires significant skill/expense/time.
