I found it was a handy thing when diving as you could not always use the trunk when divers were kitting/dekitting in rough weather and the boat tended to fill up.
I can remember on more than one occassion having the boat completely full to the tops of the tubes before fitting it.
how did you get so much water in?
as i said last week launching it i got a bit in over the transom and then not being use to the boat and engine slowed down too quickly and got another gush in over the transom.
will be leaving mine tied on a mooring in an enclosed harbour an odd week or 2 not always so i'm wondering will the manual be enough, see if i fit an automatic will it drain my battery (have the one). there will always be someone around me or family member to see it from the pier every day so if just had manual they could turn it on any day or after it had made heavy rain.
