The 357 is 35 ft 7 inches WITHOUT that platform......2 more ft sounds about right with the platform. (and Formula has very detailed info on their boats going back into the 80's so I would believe what there literature states)

Yes they do seem to be on the level with legnths..unlike some other manufacturers. Trying to figure if I can tie up a 357 at a 30 foot dock.. of wich id need to keep it a few feet from shore. If its got cleats midship I can probably do it.

My 382 had bow and stern cleats, as well as 2 sets of mid cleats (roughly every 9 ft along a 38 ft hull).....don't know if the 357 has the same set-up but Formula never skimped on anything.

Where? I had them beside the drivers seat, and another set 3-5 feet in front of the windshield (along with the ones at bow and stern)

Oops. Made the reply off what would be my skewed memory. Looked a picture of the boat and you are correct.

Keep in mind that in 88' boats were measured at the waterline, so the 37'7" is at the water.

The 357 does have a similar cleat location.

Hey Treads, does a 357 leak fresh water like a 370SS ?
