If the boat was tipped up there would not be much water be for it drained off!
Anther idea is to fit a pipe from your deck to run to the stern to drain the deck, I guess it would have to have a tap to shut it off when on the water as you wont have the height to drain above the water line! You could then have a self draining cockpit, on a trailer anyway!
I have this set up on my boat & it works very well but I can leave my tape open all the time!
