Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Raising the waterline aft on SM
We raised the water line significantly when we applied Coppercoat eight years ago. We took the Coppercoat to the top of the orange stripe, left an inch or so above that and then added a new stripe.
Only if this was pointed out to you would you notice the difference. If anything, it makes the hull look sleeker.
Never again have we had to swim around the aft section to constantly clean and it reduces the area of hull to polish.
We have made few changes to our Amel but in our book this ( alongside the Coppercoat) is up there with the best.

I think that you are on the "right track," although 6" seems a little much to me.
FYI, I saw a SM currently owned by Bill Maffei when prior to his ownership, the orange stripe was raised to a point where the bottom of the stripe location was on the line where the top had been. A 25mm gelcoat white stripe was applied under the new orange stripe. Maybe Bill will comment.
