RE: Where is length measured for regulatory purposes?

We were at Port Aransas Muni Marina and their rates were based on "under 30 feet" and "over 30 feet". Well I had a Prairie 29. The P29 is a HUGE 29ft boat(in actuality it is 29ft7in LOD). It looks big. The harbormaster came out and was writing me up and asked how big the boat was. When I said 29ft, he almost lost it. He would not hear any of it and charged me the 30+ rate. It was not very expensive so I didn't fight him but i was kinda funny.
