But isn't that going to happen with any boat if you misuse/abuse don't watch what your doing?
We have a 38 ft cruiser & I'm pretty sure if I slammed the throttles shut at 30+kts I'd get wet feet at the helm
I've also been on the deck of a 100m+ DSV & had to dodge waves rolling over the deck
It doesn't mean that the freeboard is too low you just have to adapt to the capabilities of the boat
