  1. On my J88, I use a fish scale and a meter stick. hook the fish scale to the main halyard and pull it down to say 25lbs. they have a little marker there that you can measure from... then you can reach your port side chain plate bolt at say 25" and 25 Lbs... then measure the starboard with the same halyard pressure. the bucket works but is unwieldy. mast head is centered pretty well this way as long as the deck/step/chain plates are also pretty good. My own port-starboard variance is blamed on the paddlewheel not being on center line. In a blow, with more heel, it gets worse. Howe
