Fitting a plywood deck piece in the bow of my boat - compound curves with the "V" of the bow and the tapered sides. Cut to shape from a template and now doing the final fitting. Any ideas for a material to put on hull sides that will transfer to "high" spots on deck piece so I can trim them off? Or, something to go on the plywood that will rub off at the "high" spots?

Yep, that did the trick. Actually had to go to three stores to find some - I guess a sign of the times - used to see chalk all over the place.

Anyways, worked like a charm. I have used carbon paper before. Problem was I had to bump the piece pretty hard into the paper to get a mark. Not a problem for a small piece, but I'm working with almost 4'x4' with not much room to slide back and forth.

Appreciate the input.
