Mine has a beak, and that adds a foot!Originally posted by SummerObsession
All I know is my "true length" is just over 8" .....without a beak!
I think length that touches the water line is a good spec that would be nice to compare. If you're boat shopping, that would be helpfull. Even if it is at rest, it's at least something. If it's at speed, I want to see the guy with the tape measure on a video!!!!
I had a 250ES, so I had a 26'9" boat that is "the same" as the 27'2" boat called the 272. So, I came from a 27' long 25' boat and own a 25' long 32' boat that sure rides better
But why must people bash a boat with a molded platform or beak or gradually sloping bow or whatever, instead of saying things like, well, that Cig sure is a hell of a 37' long boat!
