It was off to the ramp to do the first float. 500lbs of sandbags were added to simulate the motor, liner/CC, gas tank and gear. 250lbs at stern, 150lbs on the bow, and 100lbs in the cockpit.

Water lines marked

Dave and Myself both 200+ hopped on the deck and Rob marked the water line again. When the boat was pulled from the water we got our draft number by using a level off the lowest part of the hull to the water line. 7 1/8" with people, and 6 5/8" w/o

In this pic you can see on the bow below the eye and above the water line is another mark. This is the "Two man" line measured with 2 people on the bow and one on the stern.
