When we sailed Transatlantic, the boat carried a "crash mat" in case of major leaks. It was essentially a heavy piece of triangular canvas or sailcloth with grommets along the outside edges and lines attached to the corners. In the event of being stove in, the idea was to be able to position the material over the hole and cinch it up tight against the hole, slowing the leak so as to make it manageable. We never used it for that, but it could also have served as a nice riding sail while at anchor.
