    Last month we sold two fishing boats to Perth, after received them my customer don't like the valves in fish tanks very much. He took the valves off and then laminate the holes. He said with the valves open the boat will sink.
    :?::?::?::?::?::?::?:

    We tested before-----with all the valves open and six people stood on boat not sink.

    Maybe his six people were better fed and provisioned..
    ps. thou the tanks look prone to sloshing over, so maybe that's what happened?

    Totally depends on boat geometry. They way he plugged the holes (I presume it is his picture) does make me frown, however.
