Subject: LOD vs LOA
In reply to: Page Shaw 's message, "LOA vs. LOD measurements of "M40" Ketch" on - Sunday - 03/22/09 - 5:27pm

The first thing would be to call your surveyor and ask him (or her) what they meant by LOA. The proper use of LOA includes bowsprits and boomkins however, not everyone sees it that way. Many times LOA is used when in fact what is meant is LOD.

My 31 is 31 LOD. She's more like 38 when you add in bow sprit and mizzen boom overhang, which makes discussing slip rental with the harbor master morally challenging.

It's unlikely the surveyor measured anything. My guess is he just goofed.
