The measurements I posted may be rounded off, and as listed, I compiled them from several sources. I haven''t actually taken a tape to measure my own boat yet. I do have an old IOR measurement certificate for my boat, but don''t really know how to interpret all the funny parameters listed there. I also have a couple Mid Atlantic PHRF Certificates for the boat, which have some of these values. Finally, I have the USYRU''s IMS Performance Prediction Package report for the boat, although I haven''t found an actual IMS measurement certificate anywhere among the ship''s papers.

In general, in comparing measurements among boats, displacement always seem to be the most questionable value. I''m not sure where my figure of 10800 came from. My boat was customized to be lighter than the typical production Peterson 34 -- by 1000 lbs. according to one claim. So I don''t really know how much she really weighs.
