    I was just reading 114.99 feet in her specs.
    35.05m most other sites.
    One site reporting "35.05m (114'12")" .
    Another site reporting "overall length of nearly 37.1 metres" .

    @ meg bux per foot, 114'12" works for me.

    Her AIS says she is 108' and when you Google her one site says 35.5 M and another says 37.1
    Looks like she is heading to Great Lakes if any yacht 35 M or greater will require a
    St Lawrence River pilots and Seaway pilots very expensive if she comes to the Welland Canal will see if she has a pilot.

    Can a U.S. citizen get a private yacht through the Welland Canal yet? Or when is the opening date for that?

    Yes the St Lawrence Seaway started taking pleasure craft about two weeks ago
    Canadian yachts only as the US /Canadian border is closed to July21/20 and I expect it will be closed after that date.
    I took down US pleasure craft down last week it was a new boat being delivered to Rochester and two days latter the delivery Capt brought the trade in pleasure craft back up canal to Ohio, that is the only US pleasure craft through canal it was prearraged with customs before he arrived . I have a client from Michigan who has been in Buffalo for three weeks now trying to get down canal and custom will not allow him to enter Canada

    I'm especially fond of the 114' and 12". I might use that format going forward.

    I see on AIS there was 104' motor yacht from the Cayman Island entered the St Lambert lock heading towards the Great Lakes and there is another American yacht in the Old Town Montreal.
    So much for the closed borders.

    I believe the border is only closed to USA. Therefore non-US foreign flags may be able to enter. As long as they can get around the closed immigration part , but I once stayed at a Holiday Inn so take it for what it's worth.

    I think it depends a lot more on the passports onboard than where the vessel is flagged.
