    Hi all,
    I'm looking for a better technique to measure the hull's sections of an existing boat ( for hydrostatic calculations ) using a laser telemeter and a self-levelling vertical and horizontal laser lines .
    Can someone help me ?
    Thanks

    But im searching for a simple and precise method that i can follow just using my laser equipment cited above.
    The hull to mesasure is a 16' planning hull.
