If you provide enough flotation on the outside, the water from inside drains out. Once the gunwales are above the waterline, flooding can be controlled. Trying to access bilge compartments and find /patch the problem while climbing over a blob would be a real bitch. Displacing water is great and all but accessing the issue and repairing it to get home are the solution.

this system prevented all those things and gave a dry safe place to sit and wait to be saved and even towed back to shore !
an aluminum boat manufacture bought the idea !
Learning can be fun and very educational !!
So really, rather than asking for opinions/solutions or opening up a discussion (which is what a forum is for), this is just another Tunnles, "I know better than everyone else" thread?

I gave you the benefit of the doubt, but I'm out (unless you use any of the ideas I mentioned, in which case I'll take a royalty cheque!)

Perfect, exactly what I was after. Thanks mate.

im no rocket scientist, but i think its a lot easier to just keep the water out of the boat in the first place!
