6.1. Measurement Steps
- Using the selected Controller locations from Section 5, measure the angle with a digital protractor from the running surface to the transom, perpendicular to the deadrise. See the figure below for an example of the measurement on the port Controller, outboard location.
- Measure the inboard and outboard ends of the port Controller area and use the larger angle in the following Sections. Round up to the nearest degree.
- Measure inboard and outboard ends of the starboard Controller area and use the larger angle in the following Sections. Round up to the nearest degree. Note: It is possible to find different angles between port and starboard side of the hull.
- Determine the number of wedges required for each Controller’s Wedge Pack using the transom angle measured in previous sections and Table 2 – Transom Angle and Wedge Plates.
The transom and Wedge angles indicated in the Table 2 are the maximum range of the product. If the boat’s transom angle is outside the range of Table 2, do not add or remove more wedges to accommodate the different angle. Contact Seakeeper to determine the best course of action.
