2016.05.18 - Are Your Ribs Equal?

The cross line laser level arrived today and I quickly tried it out. It comes with a clever mounting arrangement that just fits on one of the workshop roof beams and the lines are wide enough to cross the hull and to line up the hull centre line as well. The photos below show how this will work.

Otherwise another rib done.

The cross line last level attached to the roof beam. It is not properly set up yet so it is not pointing straight down but this is just to show how it will work, not to carry out the task as yet.


The fore and aft line in the centre line of the hull.


And the cross line across the hull. This will be the line that I use to pencil in the mounting line on the hull for the rib.
