Yes; I fully agree. Screwing a sheet of plywood across the cockpit is a great idea. Seems to me that most of the problem is due to the flooding/sunken state; not that she is in the shallows. 3ft at low tide + 5ft at high tide is 8ft of water that would be beneath the boat if she were buoyant.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Nope, but I saw a great vid using the barrel method the other day, I just wish I could remember where so I could post it. It worked pretty well after they got them positioned right.

SVDistantStar,

I wanted to extend a note of support during this frustrating time for you. I have lurked on this thread from its start and pray that you are not giving up hope. Keep visioning that your vessel will soon be free of water in your cabin and once again buoyant. The sea may be laughing now, but keep the faith that the Distant Star will defy her once again.
