I'm thinking now that the calculation I want to add next is the displacement/length ratio.
As I understand it, the calculation is made by dividing a boat's displacement in long tons (2,240 pounds) by one one-hundredth of the waterline length (in feet) cubed:

I just noticed that a lot of boat reviews include it and it is based on numbers that that are available in majority of the listings.  I think you included it in one of your earlier posts.

I did mention it.

D / L = Displacement(in long tons) / ( 0.01 * LWL )^3.

A house is but a boat so poorly built and so firmly run aground that no one would think to try and refloat it.
