Yes and is how you define LOA on each type of craft. On ships is from the end tip of the bow to end tip of the stern. Same applies to RIBs. SIBs I haven't got a clue but suspect is the same principle.
In any even the rules show what this means very clearly

Manos you have contradicted yourself. In your first post you said

"Usually when you measure the legth of a boat (LOA) you measure the length of the hull, that is you measure it from the end of the nose to the end of transom. You include no tubes."

In your 2nd post just now:
"On ships is from the end tip of the bow to end tip of the stern. Same applies to RIBs"

Make your mind up, some people might be relying on the information you give them.

Can't see what I said wrong.

The length of the hull of a craft (hull starts at the end tip of a bow and ends aft - aft is not the end of the tubes but the transom. Ships have not tubes ) that is the LOA. Unless you define hull in a different way

Hey Son........

you'll have to forgive Manos, he has a touch of jonny foreigner in his blood, however having reviewed the 9 posts you've made on this forum since joining I get the feeling Manos and most of the other members on this forum have forgotten more than you actually know. Now pi** off back to your homework before your half term holidays finish.

Flippin 'eck! Who rattled your cage?

Surely LOA for a RIB is not the same as hull length? Seems pretty obvious to me.
