Boats representing a series of compromises anyway, it's always a toss-up how the designers manage those compromises. In the B24, the upswept prow creates a fair amount of overhead in the forward berth, making that area more usable than the B27. I would imagine that would also contibute to a tendency to pound the bow if headed into heavy seas.
