    I created some excel spread sheets in order to calculate FRP frames, stringers, webs etc. based on ABS rules which are used for USCG subchapter "T" regs. I'd be willing to share these with the forum, but I would like someone who is somewhat knowledgable in these calculations to check them for me, or even "better" them. Please post an e-addy and I'll mail 'em.

    Even Keels,

    I do not promise a quick response.

    I think we'd all like to see them - how about posting them - the more people that download them, the better your chances of finding any errors or improvements...

    Hi YankeeDelta,
    I am currently preparing a RIB for Subchapter T certification, and I would be very interested in looking at your spreadsheet, if for anything to just compare it with what I have worked out over the last couple of weeks. This is the first Subchapter T boat that I have been involved with, so navigating all of the regulations thus far has been a learning process for me.
