7 panel vagabond 23

I am about to finish my Vagabond 20 and a friend of mine will start his 23 soon. We are wondering if we can add an extra chine at the middle of the chine panels, increasing the number of panels from 5 to 7 to mimic a round hull a little better and get additional width at the sides, possibly making the bunks wider and storage space bigger.

We were thinking maybe a 10% offset length, perpendicular to chine at the middle. What will be the effects on stability & performance?

Best regards
