Re: Offshore Checklist

Along the same lines as the hatch boards are cockpit locker lids. The issue is down-flooding and how to make sure the boat is tight. If you are inverted, or in a 90'+ knockdown, will you cockpit lockers open up and flood the boat? There are some books (one of John Vigor's books comes to mind) that have good discussions of modifications and (more importantly?) ways to think about preparing your boat for offshore conditions and risks.
