  • "How To" Ride Plate angle/height measuring:

    measuring the ride plate angle for setting up the ride plate.
    pretty simple. Take a 4 ft level or suitable straight edge and place on (under) the hull just behind the keel. There is a cross + marking right there, place the level on that mark. Hold the level/straight edge up to hull across the shoe and take your measurement at the end of the ride plate to the top of the level/straight edge.
    It is important that the shoe be square/true and flat. (Which should have been addressed when installing a PPK.)

    the small jack is just to hold the level in place while I take the pics. there are multiple views to get the idea.
