Drip and Dry
Many boat shoes have drainage in them. It seems if you're taking water over the deck, the more drainage, the better. But shoes designed to drain the fastest have weep holes from the insole to the bottom of the outsole, and if you step in a shallow puddle of water, water can enter as well as drain. Whether you want those drains or not will depend on how often you're in the water with the shoes. The more water work you do, the more you'll like the drains. But we didn't like them when walking down a wet street.
