pick up measurement

with the pick up down the leading edge should be flush with the base of the transom. and the aft edge around 10mm lower. strike a line through the pick up with the rule flat against the hull this will give you the plane of the hull then just measure 10 mm down on the aft edge and join the lines. This will give you around 8-10 psi of water preasure
