Re: [Michalak] Making the leeboard parallel
- Sakari,That's a nice tip on leeboard installation. Would you mind if I included it in my Alternative Methods and Materials section?Seems easier than measuring equal distance out from the centerline to a long straight board... particularly if you don't have a long straight board.Nice job on your Mixer, by the way. She's lovely.Let me know.Thanks,Davidwww.simplicityboats.com

should be parallel to the boat's centerline. Here is the simple method
I used when building my Mixer; perhaps it is useful to someone else.
First I made the lower support a bit oversize and glued it to the
hull. Then I balanced the hull on one side (port) and levelled it (so
the centerline was level.) Next, with the hull still on its side,
I used the level to draw a line on the leeboard support. Finally,
I planed the support to size using the line as a reference.
