One thing to consider is whether the marina rents their slips by the size of the slip itself or by the actual measurement of the boat.
My boat is listed as 27' but with the bowsprit, it is 30' and I also have a wind vane that brings it to 32/33'. I did measure it myself just to get an idea of total length.
