Prout 45 Bridgedeck Slamming

Hi guys
Lurker here looking to pick some collective minds.

Whilst a lot of freeboard and wave pounding information (and/or opinions) is available for the 39ft and smaller Prouts, this is not the case with the 45 of the mid 1990's to early 2000's.

Were these boats prone to bridgedeck slamming? They do have (a less extreme version of) the Prout center nacelle and the bridgedeck extends quite far forward, but freeboard (at least at the bow) looks to be quite good. I would probably not bet money on a dinghy passing through under the stern though.

Any informed opinions out there?

Re: Prout 45 Bridgedeck Slamming

Hard to say from the pics, but it looks like the clearance is roughly the same as the height of the first transom step. It looks like a slammer to me.
