So is the general convention that a 40 foot boat is taken as a 12m? Or do the marines enforce this rigidly. Seems to me that a 40 footer should be able to go on a 12m berth as they are there or thereabouts. It would seem quite wasteful to have to put a 40 footer on a 13.5m berth!

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

Older marinas were generally built to fit a boat of the notional size. Now the berth size is just that - the size of the berth, you need to deduct 0.5-1.00m for the boat size to fit.
Westpark/Hobsonville has the most "generous" berths I have come across, I have seen a 15m yacht in a 14m berth there.

Westhaven physically measured our boat to make sure it was 12m.
