    you assume correctly, a pin in the stack under the deck allow the stack through the deck to be removed and a water tight cap put in place.... but the hole in the deck can also double as an exit for a bilge pump operated from below or on deck... if necessary, not a good situation but an essential option for emergency type situations where the deck hatches must remain closed and water must be pumped from below decks.

    ... Alfred Johnson's! he had a bilge pump built into the deck, seemed like a nice touch viewing it in the museaum, but after sailing on the open ocean and contemplating raising the hatch and trying to bail while keeping the hatch from sliding overboard this set up makes a ton of sense... so many design details are understood fully only in the operation of the craft.
