    A "panel" of the hull must be limited by reinforcements. Two consecutive transverse reinforcements, along with two longitudinal stiffeners, delimit an area of the hull which is the "panel". The distance between reinforcements determine the largest and smallest dimension of the panel.
    The distance "X" is usually the distance from the center of the panel until the after perpendicular.
    All this, and other very necessary things, are explained in the rules you want to apply. Therefore I recommend very strongly that you read the rules before proceeding. Otherwise, you can not calculate anything that is reliable.
