    During an inclining expt...the weights are moved...so each angle.. is a transitory state, as each of the weight shifts, produces a different angle.
    Ergo, one would use "heel", as it is a temporary angle, rather than a fixed/temperament angle.

    I think difference in AP- FP drafts also seems to me very big. It can't be correct.

    Assuming that the trim should be zero, that figure is unacceptable.
