Since the unnamed rule maker decided the swim platform must be included in the OAL, no longer can we make a decision on AOL without knowing the year.
Example, my boat was purchased and documented as 34.5 ft. Then magically, over night, it became a 36.5ft because the swim platform was added in. The hull is the same.
I asked the builder why the sudden change. His answer was straight forward, because we can charge more and everyone just followed along.
Soooooo, if you have 2footites, the newer boat ..... are all automatically taking care of that.
I sort of wish I bought an older 41ft AT. Now the newer ATs are called it 43ft boat I think ??
You have to be careful of what you buying when it comes to AOL. maybe the WLL will become more important ????
