Simply keep adding images until you are done. You may also "insert" an image into the post rather than just attaching it!

Usually the bow and stern are higher to maximize the freeboard at the bow and stern where the boat meets waves. The curve at the keel level is called rocker.
When looking at the boat hull from the side, sheer is the line where the hull meets the gunwale.
When prepping a Seafair hull for spraying, the Sheer line was masked, the hull was gel-coated white, you had just a few min. to peel off the masking tape than the sheer line was sprayed black and also the rest of the hull was sprayed black for back-up, it made it easier for the molders to lay-up or mold the hull and see any air voids.
This is what I remember, just my 2 cents worth.
Eddie gave this enlightening explanation in answer to my question regarding the sheer stripe application on Seafairs.
I just noticed in this article the bottom left photo shows the black stripe being spayed after the white had previously been sprayed in the lower section just as Eddie described.
