Boats have two length measurements, LWL Length at Water Line and LOA Length Over AllNot to be picky, but are the lengh correct?
The USS Kitty Hawk had an offical lengh of 225,8 meters, the QE is 280 meters.
An overhang at the front and back of a total of 93 meters? Incredible. Check your numbers.The Kitty has a LWL of 225.8m and a LOA of 319m.

Could it be that the "225.8" are frames? Then it would be 226 * 4 feet and correspond to 275 meters. In the US Navy, the frames are each 4 feet apart.
