    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.

    thanks ned!

    back on the water again! planning a voyage this evening over Turkey sandwiches, the plan is to go on a adventure tomorrow with the flooding tide, looking for ancient Indian middens on Plumbisland, accessible today only from the water, as the Wild Life Refuge restricts all public access to 99% of the islands interior.

    sunset on the Quascunqun.
