    I love how not just one, but two of them think that they are going to do some good by bailing with just their hands.

    Much more effective to suck it up and spit it out with your mouth.......

    That boat needs scuppers.
    They did stuff the nose pretty good though.

    I always have a deck bucket handy for everyday use while were fishing and for such emergencies. Granted I also have scuppers and keep them clear.
    I've got one of these Bridgenorth Bailers on my driftboat that helps remove water. Especially when its raining out or you get some water in it during the day. On the driftboat the drain is not in the lowest spot. It is in the back of the boat and the back rises up. So to drain it it needs the plug removed and tilted at a really good angle. This device helps remove accumulated water. And it doubles as a boat hook. While a bucket is much better and faster for smaller amounts of water this works pretty good. Also works for deck washing but nothing like a real washdown pump would.

    If it had scuppers they would of been under water, just a pos design boat.

    Where did the dude in the red come from? It looks like he fell off the fly bridge. Not the best place to be in rough seas. And, of the three highly experienced people seen on deck, who do you think had a PFD on? Something to consider if out in some big waves, especially hanging on to the roof.
