    With my front silvered Astra, I use Celestaire's brass cylinders or
    Legos that I have matched with micrometer (lapped if necessary). (Legos
    are lighter and smaller, so can be stashed for use on the water if
    needed.) I also constructed a vane the same height as the top of the
    objects placed on the arc. This allow me to be certain that I am level
    with the top of the objects without prairie dogging.
