MARK THE PIL­INGS.

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR -

The length of the tracks should ac­com­mo­date the great­est pos­si­ble tidal swing, plus 18 inches. De­ter­mine which two pil­ings to use, en­sur­ing that each will line up di­rectly with the stern and spring cleats. (If not, see “Pil­ing Proxy.”) Mark where your boat’s rub rail touches each at the stern and spring cleats at dead low tide, then mea­sure 18 inches be­low that point and mark it to in­di­cate where the bot­tom of the track will in­stall. The height of the rub rail in the stern might be lower than the height at the spring cleat, so the marks on each pil­ing might vary.
