Difficult really. Easiest way is to fill her on the water though. Shows you where water line is but also how quick water gets in which consoles and jockeys. Plus gives great experience of how to then recover and the time it takes.
Just like a MOB drill IMHO. Trunks down, get her in gear and try to get forward motion. May take a couple of rocks forward and backward.
If your battery is on deck or in a non sealed box, don't do it! Makes a mess, blows battery and ruins cables
bitter experience of our old searider with a battery on deck in a box.
A guesstimate without actually doing it. It'll be about mid tube line, depending on the weight of your boat in relation to size of tubes. Small tubes, higher, big tubes, lower down. Also depends if you have your void bungs at front and back in or out. If you have them.
