David, I originally used the tool in the upper right corner of the first picture here. I think it was too long, so it was difficult to adjust to the precise marking height, and it jittered when moving across the hull.
The second photo shows today's rig to mark the hull a second time. This one was made up of stacked wood pieces that fortunately worked out to the correct height for the bottom edge of the black boot topping. Adding a quarter inch piece provided the correct height for the top of the black. And it fit my hand easily for firm control, sliding across the tabletop. The bubble level and tape keeping the hull stable on the stand ensured that the hull was properly leveled for uniform results on both sides. I just made pencil marks every inch or two that I'll connect with the tape for new black stripe. Fortunately I don't need to cover misplaced black with red or gray.
