Sorry Mr.S but, I must disagree with your trunnel views.
A 1/2 inch diameter trunnel would need at least a frame 3 times the trunnel diameter better 4 times.
That is a pretty heavy boat as I see it.
What works in a static piece of shop furniture probably does not experience the same forces as does a plank on a boat.
