Ensure that the deck is bow up - so it drains out the socks. I've seen sooooo many swimming pool boats
You'll have to address security issues - I'd talk to the insurance company.
Excellent advice. Is that,,,,
Also seen many boats full of water due to lack of thought on storage,,
towed a humber from looe once,, took bung out at home feck me the hull was to the brim,, thought it was heavy lol Ventilation is defo the key , open every thing if you can and put broom handle in the sock so it stays open
