Length overall of Cal 246?
 
Hello,
I have a 45' slip and am interested in purchaing a Cal246. the boat needs to undergo a one-time measurement and needs to measure in at 45' exactly or less. The Cal 246 specs say it is 45.5'. Do you know if 45.5' is the actual length of the hull or does it include anything (e.g. bow pulpet, or any other bolt on, etc.) that can be temporatily removed to get the overall lenght to 45' or under? The boat and my slip is in Hawaii and I cannot measure it myself; if its possible to measure in at 45' then I will go there to inspect and offer. Any ones help is most appreciated.
thanks

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, wrk.

SailboatData also lists the LOA at 45.50' / 13.87m. There doesn’t appear to be any (original equipment) demountable protuberances. Any bowsprit will have been after marker, adding to the spec's LOA.

Cal 2-46 has no bowsprit and if you don't have davits or anything else hanging off the stern then the loa is 45'6" beam 12'6"
Mine is Dulce Sueno; built in 1974. I've only owned her for a couple of months but I took a while deciding on what to buy. I'm pretty excited about the upcoming season!

The one I used to sail had bow and stern pulpits and an anchor roller which may protrude just a little.
Very comfortable liveaboard.
Is the one you are looking at "Summer Breeze?"
