    2. You can get a very official looking piece of paper saying the boats length. This is the waterline length and is much shorter than the true dimensions. I did this on my last boat for this reason. It saved a fortune. Another forumite did it as well ! It was a 22m boat and as i recall it went down to about 19.6 - in the med this is big money! They all use the length on the documents to charge you ( with the exception of Cala Dor permanent berths - Yan uses Google! )

    3. Part 1 gives legal title which may or may not be useful to you. It may also give a buyer some comfort on purchase.

    4. you can register 64th of ownership , so I would imagine this is the reason for Pete as the boat is co-owned
    J, spot on other than point 2. My expired Part 1 reg shows the same LOA as the builder's certificate. Note that the Part 1 Reg just says "Length", it doesn't specify LOA, WL.

    I can't recall if my tonnage survey quotes a length. I know the surveyor asked for the builders certificate, etc which of course quotes LOA. Will check this evening.

    Note that the Part 1 Registration form asks for "APPROXIMATE LENGTH (in metres)"...

    Of course, the length for SSR is self certified but does ask for the "Overall length: (metres)"...

    My P1 length is 14.35m
    LOA in the Ferretti book (not actually measured it myself) is 16.20m

    Being "officially" under 15m is handy. Very handy...

    Given that you're renting water-space why indeed should you pay for taking up room in the air above it.

    Its not even about cost

    finding 15m berths is relatively easy
    finding 20m berths (the next size up in most places) is a lot harder

    Finally we've been allocated a name. Boat will be named "Andiamo F".

    My mate at work said....

    "What's the 'F' for, F****** money pit?"

    How I laughed!

    Just going back to an earlier point, the true purpose of the tonnage survey apart from confirming physical dimensions to generate an arbitary figure. Is to confirm that the vessel physically exists.

    Hence what seems a bonkers request, a re survey for tonnage, as clearly the boat in question has not grown, is actually not quite so bonkers if you (registry, banks, etc.) want confirmation of both its existence and its serial numbers etc. From a "competent person"

    Approximate length is for the surveyor to allocate time.
