Guess he is ok to just be sloshing around in water.
You'll get a little at launching but it drains even at rest in flat water.
When mooring, make sure you are ass into the beach (I've had to face nose in at Catalina before) otherwise they fill up a bit and don't drain as well.
I have lines on mine going through the grommet to pin mine up when need be. But, Willard made them pretty short and since the exhaust creates a giant bubbling jacuzzi on the starboard side, water still gets in from the top and puddle (but only on that side). I tend to pin them up at rest and let them down when under way.
