Hi,
Thank you Salvatore Tony and Larry. I am sure I will get it painted correctly. I just wanted to mark the waterline before I flip the boat and put graphite/epoxy on the bottom like I did on my flipped FS13.
Hope to see you all in Homosassa in October. Have not seen Salvatore and Tony on the list yet ?

Well, I won't be there. I live in the San Francisco area and there's a pretty good chance that I'll never make it east of the California border again in this life. Too lazy!

Hi,
I have to add that I tried to mark the waterline ( I mean the line up to where I want to epoxy/graphite the boat ) with a laser line, but my boat building shed is too narrow, so I could not place the laser in a position that it shows at the same time bow and transom marks. Now I will try tomorrow to mark it how they do it in the video Terrulian sent me. I will make the line from bow to transom each end 4 cm up and because I really like the way the guys do it in the video, I might mark the real WL once the boat is in the water and loaded with 2 people and the normal trim ballast. Then I can make a nice stripe exactly above it. Tony thanks again for the video.
