Sample text

Measurement (A) will be plotted vertically on the Station. As with the forward section of the Rabbetline, this measurement will be referenced either from the Datum or from the existing Profile Line. Measurement (B) will be plotted horizontally along the Waterline and, as with the forward section, will be referenced off either the AP or the existing Profile Line. As with the forward section, the points of reference depend on the designer of the boat; all we need to do is interpret the information in front of us.

PLOTTING THE SHEERLINE IN THE HALF-BREADTH/WATERLINE VIEW Step 1 (of 5) As with the Rabbetline, the Sheerline is plotted using measurements (Half-breadths) taken from the Offset Table. As before, these positions are plotted as a distance measured out from the C/L. The main difference is how we find the intersection point for the Sheer and Rabbetline. For this we will again use a tick stick to find the distance aft of the FP that the Sheerline and the Rabbetline intersect in the Profile View (see Step 2).

3 Pick up the Buttock/Waterline intersection points from the Half-breadth View and transfer them to the Profile View, where they will be plotted horizontally along their respective Waterlines. 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.
