Self bailing or Self draining?
The first suggests an arrangement where water is collected from the deck and pumped out of the boat, where the sea surface level is higher than the deck level in the boat. There would be a mechanism involved. Such things exist - someone tell me if they find a good one
The second is a different thing entirely, basically the decks are higher than water level at rest and deck water simply drains out via a scupper or whatever and falls into the sea.
It would be unusual to find a small RIB with self draining decks...
The Redbay Stormforce 850-1050 range can be decked to be self draining.
