The only thing you do is keep things like hatches doged closed(fasten them closed) so they cant allow large amounts of water in

On the bigger boat when we get into dicy conditions we use a different lower hatch board that locks into place which keeps water out of the cabin if the cockpit floods


In are last distance race on the J24 it got crazy near the finish and many bigger boats that had failed to reef early got into far more trouble then we did by carrying less sail and being aware of the changing weather

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
