You ETAP owners keep on about unsinkable that's really great but I think you have missed the point here. If you get holed below the water line you have to keep your batteries dry for obvious reasons and if there is no wind you are relying on your engine

I have 4 working bilge pumps, fore peak 1 manual. 1 saloon auto and manual plus float switch, 2 in the engine bilge auto with sensor its the deepest bilge in the boat and a spare pump and float switch.

If it starts to come in you got to get it out fast and a bucket is not a good idea.
