Re: Water Ballast Boats ?

With the high coamings even if the boat is knocked down for a second no water enters the cockpit.
And even if any water gets in, as long as the companion way is closed, all the waster will drain very fast since the the boat has a open transom.

And hey, I guess they don't sink either
