ports on hull/flush deck problem

I''m looking at buying a Tanzer 28 with a flush deck. A competing broker told me that one problem with this design is having the ports directly on the outside of the boat. He said that in a strong heel in bad weather the ports have been known to break or pop in allowing the water to flow freely into the cabin. Anyone ever heard of this?

ports on hull/flush deck problem

Portlights in the hull of flush deckers are pretty common and are not especially prone to problems but I raced as a ringer on a Tanzer 22 in the ''Rent a racer series'' and the boat I was on had a broken portlight in the topsides and it was amazing how much water we took on an upwind thrash.

I also sailed on a Cal 25 that left an operable port in the topside open during a heavy air beat and I was stunned at how much water can get in.
