Ahh I see. So the lengths are per determined. So for nine foot your best bet would be to average the two. Interesting, thanks!

It really doesn't work that way. The log scales take into account for a given amount of taper in a log. Using the example of an 18 ft. log the first 10 ft. may only have 1 inch of taper but the second 8 ft. log could have 2 or 3 inches of taper. So if took the bf. for an 18 ft. log and divided by 2 someone will be cheated.
