Re: How to read reinforcement diagram

The 4.5" X 8" dimensions refer to the length and width of the underlying Whaler board. The whaler board is 3/8" thick and it is recommended to drill and tap for fasteners used. What isn't clear to me is exactly how to locate these pieces using reference dimensions. Seems if you choose...
