It's all a question of why you want to measure the boat. If it's to fit in a slip then you need to include pulpit and swim step. If you want to show off to friends that's a good number too, rounded up of course! If you want an idea of the speed then waterline length is the most interesting. In fact, the LOD or CL is the least interesting in some ways. It gives you an idea of how big the boat is from a livability perspective, but to be of any use you really need to include beam and cabin height (and double decking if any).
