I am a little surprised at your experience with your Hinckly CC. I have generally been surprised at how much wetter center cockpit boats are as comaprd to aft cockpit boats. Often when the spray would have stopped short of making the cockpit on aft cockpit boat you get really hosed on a CC> Do you have a dodger or windscreen.

I don''t think CC''s are safer in that regard, I have taken far more serious water over the bow, (at the speed of the boat plus the speed of the wave) than I have over the stern (at the speed of the boat MINUS the speed of the wave). Yes, I have been pooped and yes, you can get pretty hard but nothing like that firehose squared when you plant your bow into a serious wave. Give me an aft cockpit any day.
