Just looking at putting out 2 'beams' from the stern about 2 meters long to put the RIB
on. Will be supported by sleeving inside similar 'socket sections' onboard, and with standing rigging
to mizzen head
from the outboard
As an example I have seen rectangular section 100mm x 50mm x 3mm, but I have no idea what SWL that would be. (6mm is also available)
Does anyone know what a MPa is, and whether it refers to deflection over a given length??
How about approximations to kg/m?
I fancy an I beam as it will be easier to fit wood slats into it - how much weaker is it?
Or should I bite the bullet and go for steel
any websites or engineers beginners guides welcome!
