No holes in my basket either.
I once had the sandbar I was standing on in heavy current wash away right from under my feet.
I used my basket as a float to "swim' back to shore.
I fish regularly in the surf and when faced with an especially large wave, I tip my basket up to deflect it. When you get hit by the surf in the crotch area enough times you'll appreciate the extra protection
