    Yes, quite impractical to retrofit a sea skiff. What Gonzo said is what is needed, and is very easy to achieve in a custom boat. If you look at lifeboats and ocean rowing boats they have quite a bit of sheer and highly cambered decks both ends,and self drainin cockpit in the middle, they couldn't stay inverted if you wanted them to, don't need no stinkin roll bar.
