I agree with Paul’s opinion. but to add that I was always in the mindset that the hullside profile interpretation was intended to the top.
since interpretation was not specific regarding upper and lower . I think is should be all inclusive upper and lower
Should we allow this we create potential issue(s) such as, further difficult measuring the infamous seatback issue ie: seat back angle measure from what a curved surface? I hope I have success uploading a drawing showing the extreme situation of a recessed plank it clearly demonstrates the issue we will be presented with
i think it should not be allowed
I do applaud to whom ever raised the question regard plank recess as we can see if question arrive prior to construction much confusion could be avoided.
