Well, my hull
is fiberglass and paint so really water doesn't get through it unless there's a pretty huge hole. I don't really think there are any problems with prolonged water in the bilge since the only problem with water outside the bilge is the marine
It can foul up pumps and stink to high hell, and then there's the safety
aspect of keeping it as dry as possible so that if you do have a leak you have some ability to take on water before it's sloshing the floorboards around. But again a half a cup of water sloshing around really doesn't make any kind of a difference in that regard.
