No way that's in meters, or feet. Spacing and scale isn't right.

cripes, plimsoll, your bowsprit is on straight-up pinnochio status. it looks longer than my mast.

I said metric, the scaling is international markings on ships. The meter is divided in ten. 1/10 of a meter is called decimeter. If it says 22 it is 2,2 meters. It is not so difficult On the port side the scale is in feet. Normally the markings go far beneath the waterline but i had not got time to do them up when having the boat in dock last time.
