"Hatches and the companionway are the weak points as I found out. If you don't have watertight bulkheads, modify you boat so she does. built in flotation would also be a good idea. And don't get lazy about tying stuff on the deck. Make sure…"

"What did Roger Taylor do?  Hatches can be trouble but without them, how do you stow or access things inside? I suppose you could build hulls like a surfboard, fully foam filled, and stow everything on deck. Seems a bit extreme though for sure…"
