freedom 21

Looking at buying a freedom 21, noticed that the valves on the scuppers in the cockpit will let water in when at dock, with a couple of people back there. Water drains out just fine when the weight is removed is this normal or do I need new valves?

They tend to all do it, with weight in the back or motoring the stern will be a bit lower and water will come in scuppers, design flaw i guess, have to put a cork in to stop it, not really an issue when sailing or sitting at dock with no one aboard.

Would you advise replacing them?
