That was a surprise when my buddy showed me that. Odd that the valve needed the cap so as not to leak.

Go over the transoms with a fine-tooth comb to ensure there is no softness or rot in the lower corners.
Sound advice. I would also go over every accessible seam and pick at them a bit with a fingernail to check for loose edges (especially the floor-to-tube seam.)
