Example text

4 Plot the Buttock/Sheer intersection point using information picked up from the Half-breadth View. Step 1 (of 12) 1 Lay the tick stick on B1, forward section, using either the Datum or any Waterline as a reference. Mark on the Buttock intersections of Stns 1, 2 and 3. Don’t use the Body Plan to find the Sheer intersection point as it is not an accurate line, due to the foreshortening effect referred to earlier.

2 Transfer this information to the Half-breadth View. Remember to pick up the actual faired intersection line and not the offset measurement (if indeed there was any difference). Alternative Step 1 Using a tick stick long enough to span the whole width of the Body Plan can be both awkward and impractical. It’s generally easier to use a shorter tick stick that only needs to be long enough to cover the maximum Half-breadth of the Body Plan. As you can see from the drawing, the tick stick is laid to pick up one side of the Body Plan and is then rotated to pick up the other side, using the original C/L mark as a common reference point.

2 Repeat this procedure for all of the remaining Stations from WL 2, in this case Stns 2, 3, 4 and 5. If the Transom of the boat is not raked we can also plot the Transom Half-breadth on the AP. However, this boat, like many others, has a raked/angled Transom and the Waterline will end somewhere forward of the AP. The following steps ( 3, 4, 5 and 6) will show you how to plot the Transom end position of the Waterline. Step 3 As mentioned earlier, because the Transom is raked/angled, we can’t just end the Transom on the AP.
