(Change) 29. Buoyancy
The two transverse
bulkheads must be watertight, but may be fitted with hatch openings
as specified in rules 9(d), 9(e), 13(b), 13(c), and water-tight hatch covers.
Two drain holes, of maximum diameter 1" are permitted in bulkheads and
transom, but must be effectively stoppered while the boat is in the water.
It is not practical fully to test the buoyancy compartments by total immersion
owing to their large volume. Measurers are to check all watertight joints
and satisfy themselves that they are efficient and that the hatches are
adequately watertight. The owner is advised to test the buoyancy annually
by floating the boat in a waterlogged condition, with the water overflowing
the top of the centreboard case. After 20 minutes in this condition the
boat should be bailed out and the tanks inspected for leakage.
