I don't know whether I should be posting this here or in Building but here it is. As a general rule, is it possible to shorten the length of a plywood boat, by about 20%, while maintaining the same beam? Not by simply cutting off the end but more along the lines of repositioning the bulkheads proportionately to the original plans?
The boat I have in mind is a very straight forward flat-bottomed design that is just a bit long for my tastes or my workshop. I don't know how everybody out there feels about modifications but when I see something I like, I immediately try to figure out how I can "improve" it. Thanks in advance.
