Interesting question, and one that I pondered from the beginning of even this project. I don't think the intention of the designer/engineers was for this boat to be as 'flexible' as it proved to be, so I'm hoping I haven't added any 'hard point stress areas'.. I don't think so since I pretty much just replaced what was there with hopefully better/stronger.
Doing such a project on a totally-liner-supported hull would be interesting and depending on skin thickness might require some engineer's input.
