Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

That's a good one SimonV. Any more info on the friend's boat? I'd love to have specs, photos, etc.

The only dumb question is the one that you didn't ask because you thought it would make you look dumb.

This thread resurrection sets a record. Not only did someone reopen a 5 and half year old thread, almost all the answers are exactly the same as those posted back then. Its like repetitive necrophilia.

This one is the winner as the only new info.

What a great name for a song.

Atlas, I have no idea but it is 36' CC called Portland Lady and owned by a dry witted Kiwi who has traveled the world.

Re: What is a g.r.p. hull

Gross rating point (GRP) is a term used in advertising to measure the size of an audience reached by a specific media vehicle or schedule. It is the product of the percentage of the target audience reached by an advertisement, times the frequency they see it in a given campaign (frequency % reached).[1] For example, a television advertisement that is aired 5 times reaching 50% of the target audience each time it is aired would have a GRP of 250 (5 50%). To achieve a common denominator and compare media, reach x frequency are expressed over time (divided by time) to determine the 'weight' of a media campaign. GRP's are used predominantly as a measure of media with high potential exposures or impressions, like Outdoor in particular, then broadcast.

GRP values are commonly used by media buyers to compare the advertising strength of various media vehicles.[2]
