Yeah ! And why do they use so much aluminum and such ? Why don't they still build them from wood, canvas, leather and hemp ?
they spend a great deal of time with huge amounts of water sloshing into the cockpits, and that's the only way to get rid of the water.
Where are these "deluges" into the cockpit coming from on an open transom that wouldn't also fill a bathtub cockpit that relies on a scupper to drain ?
