    Default Port-a-bote - Remove the flaps?

    Iím the new owner of an older model port-a-bote with the pointed rear transom and the flaps. I have not had it in the water yet as it needs some repair, but Iíd like to remove those flaps (and obviously plug the holesÖ). Do they do any good? Will I regret removing them?

    Iíll be using a 44lb thrust minn kota on it, so I wonít be getting on plane.

    Any thoughts?

    That's an older model like mine and the flaps add stability.
