Post depth of 43L

Hi all,

Fairly new here, we just purchased a 43L, and need to find the depth not draft for the CG simplified measurements form. The problem is our boat is out of the country and we are still in the US. Trying to get her registered asap.

Anyone out there have a leopard 43 and know your depth?

thanks so much!!

Re: depth of 43L

What's a 43L. What's the dfference between "depth" and draft? Presumably, it's depth is zero if it's still floating :0




Please don't post the same thing in multiple areas.!

Re: depth of 43L

Itís a 43 foot 2006 Leopard Sailing Catamaran and we are currently not with the boat. The depth is from the deck to the bottom of the hull(not including keels). Having trouble finding this spec on the internet. Looking for help.

Re: depth of 43L

The Coast Guard is trying to determine the size of the hold, so as to calculate the tonnage volume of the boat. They want the bulk of the hull, not anything like a keel that sticks out underneath, but doesn't hold anything. It's like they left off part of the description: "depth of hold", which is not the same thing as the boat's draft. A dealer should be able to figure this out using a tape measure going from the bilge to the underside of the deck.

Re: depth of 43L

Thx that is correct but does anyone have or know how to get that value? We are not with the boat. It would be at the beam.

Re: depth of 43L

This brings up the question of how they deal with multi-hulled yachts? Do they just measure one hull in a catamaran and then double the numbers? And in trimarans, do they count the amas?

Lots of multihulls these days, so I guess they must have figured it out...
