Re: frame thickness on Belle Isle

Basic engineering says that the strength of a beam is defined by:

I = ( B * H^3 ) / 12

B = base width of member
H = height of member

So loosing a 1/16" off the width won't do much. Just increase the height of the member by 1/16 and you are stronger then when you started.
