      It’s been many years, but my Sweet Pea was built with the area under the end decks filled with foam (multiple layers of standard construction insulation cut to fit). I do not recall if this is included in the plans or was something I did on my own. I never tried stand up rowing. My recollection is that Sweet Pea had great reserve stability and I think that if you fell out of it, the boat would not capsize. For what it is worth, I think that the “slipping keel is overly complicated. I built mine with a fixed keel which wasn’t very effective and probably degraded rowing. If I were doing it again, I would build Sweet Pea as a pure rowing boat and forget about sailing.

      Might anyone have experience or suggestions for being able to self rescue if one were to fall overboard.
      Sweet Pea allows for stand up rowing.
