It also allows for taking in substantially more water if hatch is open and a wave breaks over the bow and the hatch is open.

Personally - I wouldn't go forward facing. There are plenty of other things that can be done that do not invite water like its got a VIP pass than that. Also note that his boats are relatively LARGE and high freeboard.
