This is one of those things where bigger is always better!
Running around in the cockpit opening doors is the last thing you want to be doing under the conditions (very stormy seas) that caused the flooding.
I have had the dubious pleasure while working as a deckhand on a sportfishing yacht, the scuppers looked adequate, quite likely made the spec, but were useless due to jamming with ropes, fishing gear, t-shirts, and trash, basically everything loose that doesn't float tries to get out of the scuppers.
