A self-draining cockpit must be above the waterline, or water would come into the cockpit rather than flow out through the scuppers (cockpit drains). How much above the waterline must it be? Obviously, the higher the cockpit level above the water the better for drainage, but in a 14-foot to 16-foot boat the hull depth limits the cockpit level. Way back in memory a figure of 9 inches above the waterline for a self-draining cockpit was considered desirable for a boat in the 20-ft. range; obviously, any figure must take into account the size and shape of the boat. - See more at: http://boatbuilders.glen-l.com/27250/self-draining-cockpit/#...
