K1VR:  Trick question. Both methods result in the same degree of
accuracy.  One method relies on making the tower legs match the three 120
degree lines, and the other method relies on one string lining up with a
tower leg.  As the human eye can only see one sight line at a time, you
are really talking about apples and apples. One line v. one line. Each
method is equally accurate or inaccurate, the 120 degree lines will be
fine -- in each method, the challenge is aligning a leg and line.

P.S. Never take your engineering advice from a lawyer...
