Yet more Dory Questions!
yet another question for you!
thanks in advance to any thoughts you may have.
on my 17ft Dory, which incedently is open, no cuddy!
there are at the rear of the boat, slots in the back tansom area, which allow all water that floods the deck, to exit the rear of the boat.
on the water side of the transom, where these two ports exit, there are socks that you can lower into the water to drain the boat, or raise to stop water creeping back in when stationary.
we use the boat mainly for diving, sometimes for fishing
i hope you are still with me, and not dosed off!
my question is,
is this the best system? or would i be better to seal these holes up, and put in some sort of bilge pumps?
when stationary, in rougher seas, we still get water on the deck. which is annoying!
i dont want to empty all the foam from under the deck. but wonder if two slots cut near the rear could be made to house bilge pumps or simular
anyway, your thoughts/ideas/Suggestions??
