There is a lot going right in the video. For example, it is good to see that your PFD fits well. Many people have them loose, so they float up over their heads when they actually hit the water.

On the float bag - your boat does look like it stays high enough out of the water that you could get back in (with a paddlefloat or cowboy scramble). Adding a float bag up front would help keep the nose higher, and you'd also have less water to drain.

On sealant, I'd probably go with a decent silicon sealant. Apply it liberally. I use the stuff you can get out boating stores, but perhaps the household stuff would be just as good.

Your wife has a great accent. We don't hear accents like that much out here in California.
