As Ribochet and Razerbill have just said about it being virtually transomless ,,,,,proper selfbailing at its best
also in a real life capsize ,
a sea anchor /drouge is deployed from a canister fixed up in the bow by means of a toggle operated from the stern ,
crew all muster and then hang on to a rope at the stern as by that time the boats bows should then be pointing bow to the oncomming seas with the action of the drouge also giving a bit of lee protection for the crew ,
one crew member then gives the stainless ring a good tug which operates the self right bag ,,
when the boat rights a hand hold loop/strop thats hanging down from A frame can be used to pull themselves up with .
