Nope, I was thinking of fitting a trunk but then you have the problem of it getting mashed by the prop etc.

Course, you could always fit a self priming pump if you're that worried.

I'm over reacting really as I'm going through everything in my head. I could imagine water trapped inside the hull could course handling issues.

Purchased 3 yesterday from Seamark Nunn. founds lots of them once I knew the correct name to search for in google! Also amazed how much cheaper they are in Amaerica (around half price) shame the postage would knock it up to about the same price.

I did have concerns about thing blocking them open but I think people leave the trunks down more often than I'll have problems with things getting stuck in them!

Thanks for the help.
