  Keep 8 lbs per gallon in mind

Lifting a boat out of the water - to drain it -
will involve muscles and technique to be efficient.

Each gallon of water weighs 8 lbs .
Now consider that weight sloshing around, inside the kayak.

Securing those float bags so they don't slip out is important.
Just because they fit when its upright doesn't mean,
they'll stay in position when the boat is flipped over.
What is keeping them in place, a tether, a clip, etc. ?
