Default How much freeboard is enough?

HI Is the higher freeboard to keep water out or keep you in the boat? A buddy down the road loved his boat but found that the gunnels were too low and he was worried about falling over in rough seas. Solution, he did a tasteful job of raising the railing about 10" and extended it back to the edges of his twin outboards. Additional glitter looked good and for a few bucks he was much happier in a boat that was already paid for. Did the work himself for $300 and a long weekend. Just another option to think about.
