Default Neptune Question

The instructions recommend to install the float in alignment with the wing rib end. I've seen pictures that show two differents positions as pictured here. Which one is right ? Left or Right picture ?

I would do it like pic #2 because you can center the float over the rib. In Pic #1, the rib is along one edge of the float.

I would agree with Mike, knowing that most flying boats have water issues when their tip floats are mounted all the way out on the wingtips(i.e. Seawind), I would move it in like #2.
Good luck,
Curtis
