Default How much freeboard is enough?

Freeboard or Gunnel height?....Freeboard, I like it to be just high enough so I reach the water and gaff fish comfortably.
Gunnel height above the deck I like to be just above my knees. That height coupled with the coming pads makes it easier to fight a fish.
Five weeks and counting
