There are pros and cons for each option, what I can add is there is less usable storage for large items in a CC, also the motion in the cc is more pronounced withn side to side movement, but fore and aft is reduced. Depending on the sea the cc is much drier, especialy in a following sea.

It really depends. On a smaller boat, an aft cockpit is probably both drier and provides more storage, at the cost of a less comfortable aft cabin, if any. On a larger boat, the center cockpit provides a beter vantage point, can be a bit drier, as it is higher up, and a more comfortable aft cabin, at the cost of cockpit storage areas.

I personally prefer the aft cockpit layout on smaller boats, ie, those less than 40'.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
