Not always but when you do need them they are great
The alternative, when you have a boat full of water, is to stop and bail but because you are stopped you tend to get just as much water in as you are bailing out With self-bailers you can keep motoring into the waves while the boat is baling itself Des

If not, then are RIBs really necessary for light inshore use?

Donkey's knob does sound better!
