i really cannot see why these would be used as templates. these folk did not lack real boats to use as templates if they were needed afterall, and
could place them where they wanted.
and where is the template for the keel?
anyone ever build a canoe or row boat using megaliths for a plan? of course not
bronze age boat builders would more likely have used memory, a well experienced eye or other methods.... they could have had lengths of wood or
string/cord if the measurements needed recording - far more practical
also, in those papers i linked earlier, there are plans of some of these monuments and you sure as heck would not float something of those dimensions,
however great other ones look.
these no doubt relate to cosmology and burial practices - the boat was understandably a vital part of these peoples lives, for fishing, traveling,
trading and raiding. such an integral part of life becomes likewise for death and movement to the otherworld.
