Thanks for any input!!
I have found that on most boats,the measurement is usual taken from the hull at the bow to the transom,and excludes engines,swim platforms,bow pulpits/sprits,or anything else that didn't come made to the main hull.The manufactures also have a habit of rounding up their sizes to the nearest foot,ex 37'3" would be a 38' hull plus any additions hanging off the hull.This isn't a set rule and it's always true.Just a guideline of sorts.
