my feeling is that the implicit free surface is "sub-optimal" for tidal simulations. See here:
Maybe your aspired boundary conditions are also easier to implement in an explicit scheme for the barostropic mode?

Though what might happen on the obc is that tangential velocity divergence is overwritten and eta is then set to zero -- don't remember exactly. You can check in, I think, solve_for_pressure. However, through some niceties of the c-grid I don't think any of this really comes into play in the dynamics though.....at least, when sponge layers are off it doesn't really come into play
