We have a friend restoring his Drascombe Lugger and he needed information on where to place the bootstripe, so here it is. 1980 MKII Lugger Bootstripe ONKAHYE Style, applied by Capn Jack. Measurements taken from a galloping horse. Bootstripe "approximately" 4 inches wide, with variations for optical illusions.
32 inches down from the bottom of the gunwale along the curve of the stem. Or about 7 inches down from where the bottom of the third strake hits the stem. 4 inches high.
Place the bootstripe right about there...
Corpus Christi, TX T-Heads.
"Approximately" 4 inches wide. Sometimes it might look better for the bootstripe to be a little wider at the bow and stern and/or to rise up a touch.
7 inches down from where the bottom of the third strake would fair into the stem.
32 inches down from the bottom of the gunwale along the curve of the stem.
Put the bootstripe even with Skipper's shorts pocket.
Put the bootstripe just above the waterline, with the boat unloaded.
Bootstripe barely touches the bottom edge of the scupper strake.
These 2 hooligans will be of no help whatsoever, they can't even spell butestrype.
Transom, bootstripe lower edge touches bottom edge of third strake. Measure 4 inches up from there.
This is what the bootstripe looks like from inside the boat.
