Measurer’s Interpretations and Recommendations
|Question:||May the floorboards be re-constructed from plywood?|
|Short Answer:||Yes |
|Answer:||Class rules indicate "Floorboards shall be neither altered nor removed for racing". I would interpret this as that the floorboards may be re-constructed as long as they are of the same general size and weight and that marine plywood is acceptable. Especially forward there is wide variation in construction. |

|2008-04-03||Richard Robbins||The technical committee discussed this (3/12/2008) and it was decided that plywood could be used forward of the kingpost (winch post) only. The following addition to Section IV-3.4 is proposed (with input from Cape Cod Shipbuilding):
Floorboards aft of the kingpost (winch post) shall be made of solid wooden slats. This includes a section around the rudder post and two center sections. Floorboards forward of a line aft of the kingpost (winch post) may be made from solid wooden slats or plywood.|
