The PA is considered a sit on top (SOT) kayak which has, for lack of a better term, "sealed" storage area below deck. There are a number of scupper (drainage) holes molded through the hull (in the cockpit and behind the seat) which will allow for the drainage during travel. In the event that water does find it's way into the interior space of the hull, there are two plugs in the stern of the PA to drain any trapped water.
I'm excited for you to receive your PA! Enjoy!
