Squirt waterline

Postby jgiando45 » Thu May 31, 2012 8:16 pm

I am looking top draw on a waterline for my boat before i put it in the water. i am not overly concerned with this being to accurate and I only wish for it to really look nice. Any suggestions for calculating a rough waterline?

8) your plans should have recommended water line height on them :wink:
Don't be afraid to attempt anything. You might surprise your self in the attempt.

Look at pictures of the Squirt in the water from the Gathering photo albums and use that to help estimate the proper location

Waterline on mine was about 2" along the side at the transom

...Of course, after you put a couple fat boys in it, it'll draft a little more.
