Boat closed in!
The stern looking forward. The center deck is sloped aft, to clear any water that comes aboard and is about 3 inches above the design waterline; just below the bottom of the transom. The footwell has a slope at the aft end so that the surge of the boat under oars will "slosh" most of the water out of it. If that doesn't work I may have to fit a venturi bailer.
The bow eye is abs pipe just aft of the inner stem and is supported by an end-pour of thickened epoxy strong enough to tow the boat under any circumstances.
