Tips on how to measure from a customer
We found the easiest way was to take masking tape and a tape measure to the boat and then calculate and note the 16″ intervals to take the circumferences with a dressmaking tape measure. And for the other measurements we put masking tape across the boat with a mark in pencil for the point we used to measure the cockpit.
