I am considering a Cap Camarat 9.0WA, and currently have a Monterey 278ss. My boating ground is the Spanish Med. The deadrise of my Monterey is 21 degrees whereas the CC is only 16 degrees. Would this mean the CC will have a tendency to slam more?
Main reason to consider moving to the CC is to have a closed bow and a bowtruster. The 278 is a great boat but it’s a bow rider so I need to be careful in what seas I take her out. Any 9.0WA owners that can share experience? Many thanks in advance

Go for a proper open bow centre console boat with 24.5 degree dead rise.

Youll never have to be “careful“ again! 😂

Yes to the slamming Q
The dead rise difference is not a linear relationship.There is sq or even cube in the vertical acceleration equation.
So a 20 to 15 drop in dead rise does not mean a 25 % increase in vertical acceleration it means a sq or cube at a given speed at the same wave height.
So to get to same comfort levels in the 20 , the 15 has to slow down or cease going out in big waves - use it in calmer conditions.

I'm surprised that the cap camarat is only 16 deg deadrise, that's quite shallow.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the open bow on the monterey, how often do you actually take a significant amount of water over the bow even in very rough conditions? I used to have a sea ray bow rider and used to go out in all sorts, took a hand full of waves over the bow (usually wakes from large boats) in the 7 years I owned it, but it was fine, the bilge pumps handled it without drama.

The Depth of the V only comes into effect whilst the hull is plaing at high speed I doubt if you will notice any difference from your current boat. Surprised to hear you have problems with current boat in the med, Try trimming the bow up

First of all a big thank you for all your responses.
To be fair the biggest issue I have is probably the absence of a bowtruster. With stern to mooring and a single engine, mooring is fine if my neighbours are there. However, on a windy day with no boats next to me it is virtually impossible to moor.
With regards to taking waves over the boat, it only happened once and was my mistake as I approached the wave incorrectly. I think I’ll park the CC idea and keep the Monterey for a while.

We've got a Jeanneau Cap Camarat 8.5 CC in the Med.

Its slams.... a lot.

They really are fair weather boats.

I started looking at Blackfin and Fountain center consoles, and will look at other fast fishers.
