There's gotta be a way for the dorade vents to self-close in a capsize. Even the plastic covers seem inadequate -- imagine the tons of water pressure on them if a boat turtles.
It is my new philosophy of sailboats that
"Everything has its place, and there's place for everything"
The corollary is that everything should be left where it was if ever the boat is tossed around or knocked over.
Needless to say tons of water gushing in through various holes in the hull
I'm not happy with many design elements of regular sailaboats ie: Small scuppers in large cockpits; or the the enormous portlights
in many boats either, especially when they open IN rather than OUT. Who on earth thought of that?
