I did some rough calculating using the W/B info from Vans demo -14 taildragger and the issue is not at max gross, but when the fuel gets lower the C/G moves aft. With a 200lb pilot, 200lb passenger, and 10 gallons of fuel, even with 90 lbs of baggage you are almost .25in aft of the rear limit of 88.24 in. This is with a 15pound battery at approximately station 150 which is 20in from the center of the baggage compartment measurement used by the factory.
