Size....not that it matters....of boats of course.

Wifey B: This is a poll caused by another thread on the size of forum member boats. I'm making it simple for those with more than one boat, it's about the size of your largest currently owned boat or if you have no boat today but did have one, it's size. I don't care about the type boat.

Answer based on LOA.

38 feet LOA / 33.5 waterline. Well, according to the builder. But that's 38 feet hull length before bolting on the bow pulpit and swim platform. Real LOA is in the 42 - 43 foot range.

Looks like most have a bigger boat than I (35 feet). Not jealous, really. Mine sleeps two (but has five berths), entertains six, cruising inland waters, and using ships for open-sea travel.

Then my vote should be changed from 60 to 61? again, I don't see the point of the poll. If you are trying to determine size, then beam and height make a big difference, as does displacement.
