Do you think it’s legal to have extra framing (like an extra station) between the transom and station 1? And between station 2 and station 3 to support the shape of the hull?
My old wooden 1971 OK dinghy has a total of 4 diagonal ribs ( you could say stringers) on the bottom panel to keep the panel into shape (both starboard and port, between transom and station 1, and between station 2 and station 3). Or would it be better to thicken the bottom plates and have nog stringers or what so ever?
