LOA question (Cal 29)

Hey folks,
I would measure myself, but my boat is in the boat yard right now.
I just bought a 1974 Cal 29 and while it's at the yard, I'm looking for a permanent slip.

Now, the LOA says it's 29.3, but my question is, does that include the bow pulpit and boarding ladder? I need to know because they won't let the boat extend a certain amount outside the slip.
Thanks much!

Re: LOA question (Cal 29)

Those dimensions typically do not include such overhangs, and marinas typically do, of course.

I'd guess many marinas will bill you 30-31 feet for that boat, more if there's an outboard hanging off the back. Our old 28 footer was 'measured' at 32 with o/b and pulpit added on.
