Cape Dory 36 LOA

All the info from Cape Dory shows LOA of 36'1.5" but is that really LOD? A guy I know said his is 45' with a monitor wind vane. Seems like 9' is an awefully long wind vane.

Re: Cape Dory 36 LOA

Ya...I doubt it is 45'. More like 40. I think they may have a short bowsprit though.

Re: Cape Dory 36 LOA

Have you posted this on the Cape Dory board? It is interesting that the manual only states the LOA you report and no LOD. Maybe careful measurement on a drawing with another known dimension?

Re: Cape Dory 36 LOA

My CD30k is listed as 30' LOA on the CD site but she is actually 30' LOD and 32' with the bowsprit
