we were given a small plywood skiff--hull only--needs finish work, topsides, etc.--built by a guy who had money and little real skill. this dude was IN LOVE with epoxy, but apparently not a chalk line, measuring tape, etc.
the boat is about 12 ft by 4, slight deadrise. now, my young friend wants to use it to knock-around in, not race or any of that tomfoolery. however, the measurement-impaired builder misaligned the c/b slot by about 1/2 inch over its length. the c/b is aluminum.
my question is: will the 1/2 inch make a detectable difference? is it worth cutting out and reinstalling?
