Re: Purchasing a Used 17'

Would running a string, fore to aft, pulled real tight, show any curves in the hull? I used this method before I put the deck on. Then measured from string to side of boat.
The biggest differance here would be the cockpit would hinder the true run of the string but, maybe, by snapping the line it would average out enough to center, then eyeball the length overall.
Possible method for future steals on used boats. Good luck and sailing!!
