Randy,

You are correct about the CG playing with the measurements recently. I confirmed with a friend who runs a vessel documentation service that the CG has made some changes in the formula. Something to do with freeboard vs deck height as I recall. She said that the new measurements disqualify some boats that previously qualified for documentation. The Dana 24 was one example she mentioned.

You are also correct that the measurement is a volume measurement, its based on tuns of wine.

I'm used to own a SC 32 and it was documented at net 10 tons.

Kevin
