Marking the Waterline

Today I marked the waterline. I wanted a waterline that sticks up a couple inches out of the water when the boat sits at the dock. I noticed that most Zips sit fairly low at the stern when sitting in the water and the waterline ends up submerged. To correct this I angled mine to be high in the stern and its just my best guess at how high to make it. I hope I didnt over do it.

In the front I had the waterline follow fairly close to the chine and up to the stem. I did this so the paint will cover up the flaws where the side and bottom planking meet towards the bow.
