You memorize all of the model boats ever made and then you remember thier lengths so that you can quickly look at the boat and say, "Why, of course, that's a Lead Bobber 38." The 38 in the name tells you its 38 feet long, unless its one of those durn furen boats in which case the 38 means its 125 feet. Now isn't that much easier than putting up with Alex for a day.....

I think you meant a 'Not too Farr over the Horizon 38', didn't you?

Lead Bobbers 38s are very popular with the serious cruising crowd.

I like the suggestion by Chuckles. How about spreaders, are they ever a clue?
Usually if there are spreaders it is a sailboat My rule of thumb is that if the boat passes me, then it must be a 60 foot open class maxi ocean racer (or larger). If it is one of the boats that we pass, then it is merely a J40 or something similar. If it is underwater and we sail over it, then it is a Hunter or a MacGregor and about 26 feet long.

Hope this helps
