The early Robalo 20 and 23 had no bilge. They were foam filled and had a fuel tank tray but no bilge.

My 31' Cape Horn has a bilge about the size of a 5 gallon bucket.

Boston Whaler outrage 18, 20,22,25,etc from the 80's. My dad has an '89 and its a very solid boat, no real bilge that I know of but there may be some Whaler experts on here who can chime in.

all pangas with no decks

but bilges are necessary to drain water and gas out of hulls with decks. otherwise you will never know if something is wrong under the water line.

water tight bulkheads with air or foam are time bombs IMO.

No doubt. If there is a void down there I want to be able to see what is (or isn't) down there.
