Contour Guage

Recommended Posts

My kit supplies pieces for a stand/cradle that has a keel slot started, but not the hull shape.


I found this contour guage at a Harbor Freight store (US chain with cheap tools/hardware) for a few dollars. There are higher quality ones available elsewhere.


I used it to get the hull shape to do the cradle piece. I can also see it used to check the hull's shape and symmetry when fairing.
