    You are correct the GD is only a stern factor. Off hand the to bow girths were FGS was 5/8 and IFGS was 3/4 BMAX and the aft griths were IAGS was 3/4 and AGS was 7/8 BMAX and if the stern was a flatty and the girth wire did not fit around the body at the stern corner (AGS) the increase distance was the GD, and was added to the IAGS girth. I stand corrected on this as the old grey matter is trying to dig back into the memory banks of the earlier 70's.
