I recall a brief discussion with Kurt. He indicated, so long as water does not enter the ER air intakes the boat is safe. Not his exact words. Any comment he may have made was in reference to an an obviously near 'bare bones' boat, and nothing on the upper deck. We all add 'stuff' to make our lives more comfortable. To the upper deck I have added a dock box for life jackets and spare lines. Also an offshore raft and 4 SCUBA tanks. These items will have a negative effect on a recoverable roll by changing the center of gravity, maybe allowing water to enter the ER via the air inlets.
The boat may recover but, the effect on the "peas in the tin can"(you and I) may suffer damage. Considering we are not strapped in or strapped down, I guess we should wear helmets? SMIRK
