    Well, I think that is common sense, all vessels hold water ....

    All those options are great for a broken thru hull, or a direct puncture of the hull, but if you have a long crack, odd shaped gash, a split in the hull, the only thing that will save your ass is a good bilge pump and the wax. So, at the very least, carry the wax, as it will work on most minor hull breaches.

    My boat is designed to keep water out.


    What I am saying is this...great, you have an "unsinkable hull design", But the goal is to stop the water from getting in the boat not let the boat fill to the gunnels.

    "the boat is ruined, but hey, she didn't sink"
