RE: Lengthened Ocean Alexander MK1 handling characteristics?

Many of the party boats that charter here in NYC have hugely extended hulls past the rudder post.

USCG admeasures charter boats from the bow to the rudder post , so with cheap help only having the tiny 100Ton tickets , the boats were specially built to be BIG , but measure small.

Ha , and you thought the racy rag baggers were the only folks out to fool the measuring tape!

Seems not to harm the operation of the boat as the river can run 5K , 4 times a day , and the charter party expects to walk the same dock to their cars.
