It might appear counter-intuitive, but this is a necessary stage before starting to use a wooden boat. Timber is never completely stable, but it will shrink and expand based on moisture. Submerging is a sure way to increase timber moisture, making it expand so that all the possible cracks and holes will be closed, making the boat all water-tight.
