upon further review, and with conversation with Warren
I have changed up wording as such
16. Hull outer surface cross section must be rectangular +/- 2 degrees from a point 6’’ (153. mm) from the bow to a point 6’’ (153. mm) from the stern.
Exclusions: Cockpit surface, seat back, knees, rails, fittings, and hardware.
A maximum 1/4’’ (6.3 mm) radius is allowed on the corners of the fuselage where the deck / bottom and side panels intersect.
Concavities in the deck are not permitted.
reasoning; pervious wording of “exception of cockpit” could be confusing deleted that and added specific items I hope I have them all
One key word here is “outer” pertaining to surface outside of hull. This specification has no intention of controlling any aspect of inside the cockpit area. It is meant to pertain to the outer surface cross section created by side panel verticals surfaces relative to the horizontal deck / bottom surfaces along the entire hull less the exclusions front and rear
I also added the radius to the bottom of side panel/ bottom intersection, mainly for housekeeping
I do not believe this is in conflict with any existing interpretations
Please respond to this Immediately as it may be holding up the ballot to the class
