Level Flotation
 
Does anyone have an idea as to the effectiveness of the flotation in my 77 Stars & Stripes? There just doesn't seem to be a lot of foam involved in the construction. Having seen that one can take most or all of the running gear off the bottom of the boat, I just thought I would ask. Clearly the automatic bilge pump would take care of any small leak, but what happens when a major problem arises?

Without foam (or some creative replacement), it sinks.

No it wouldn't, it's a mastercraft.:D

I'm not sure, but if you decide to pull the plug and see, please let us all know.

I'm going to get it out of storage this weekend and checking that all the flotation is in place is rather high on my list of things to do. Thanks for the great pic ski.
