Gents, I'm working the plans right now for my Lexington. Where the deck aft steps down, I do not have a rib close enough to really fudge into the right spot without upsetting the placement of all my other 3/8" ribs. My question is what would be considered legal to place between the two deck levels to tie them together? If I have a 1/2" Cap Rail, then I would think I would be allowed to turn my rail 90 degrees to the vertical, and tie into the upper portion, turn back 90 and run forward. Or, as I have seen in other threads most folks have ribs in the right location, only a rib thickness be allowed to be used. I know its only an 1/8" but I want to use the biggest permitable wood to tie them in.
