    Having my boat painted this weekend and had a question about laying out the cap. Before I stripped and primered it, I measured the distance at the bow and stern where the bottom of the cap should be. Looks like the line on the bottom of the cap is straight in this example. Can't exactly snap a line around the hull contour, so what do you use? Maybe a laser? The picture is an example of the cap I want to copy, like the original. Thanks [​IMG]

    I used a laser level with the vert and horz lines for my rebuild.
