I crew on a Tartan 34C in Lake Michigan. It seems to me that the boat is down a bit by the head, but because the design waterline is not molded into the boat, there is no way to tell accurately without measurements.

Does anyone out there have information on the design fore and aft freeboard?

Mine is a Tartan 34 1985...not sure if it applies to classics but .....

When on the hard this year (our first) and starting to paint the hull I noticed a small dimple in the gelcoat (more like a6mm "outey") foe on the starboard and then one the stern. The marina had another 1985 T34 up for the season.....Ichecked her out ...same dimples. It seems that these were markers were meant to be the waterline marks for balancing.

As you can probably tell, I have little/no technical expertise and someone will probably post with the true nautical name of what these marks are, but perhaps it can help your investigation a bit.
