What is it?

Thanks,

some funny but true answers, it is the depth of your cockpit from the floor to the top of the sides and helm.

The side of the hull measured from the top of the gunwale to the waterline.

If I fall of the boat tomorrow, will you still remember me?
Because you don't have much freeboard....
I could fall into the sea....
So don't you turn quite so sharply...
Or that splash you hear will be me....

When I saw you had no freeboard...
I shoulda worn a PFD.... A Pfdee eee eee eee ee e e ee eeee

Shoulda worn a PFD, Lord.

Shoulda worn a PFD....

I think I would also win the "who has the most freeboard" contest.

Bad pic.
But must be four feet of freeboard.

Can't even see over the side if you sit in the back.
