The transom flaps on my World are just flimsy plastic, as yours look like. If you have self-bailers than the transom flaps are almost redundant and most cruisers tape them shut to the transom (I do) and only push them open in extreme circumstances; this prevents unwanted water ingress and you can easily punch them open if required. The self-bailers will empty water in most conditions fast enough.
