This one cost me a lot of brain power before I figured it out, so I'm posting here in hopes it will save another Melanesia builder a headache.
The Imperial (inches) figure given for the side panel depth at the second station line forward of the center on the Melanesia is incorrect. It's listed as 13 and 3/16 inches, but when lofting the curve, that point sits well off the line. It turns out that the metric dimension, 351mm, corresponds to 13 and 13/16 inches, a difference of 5/8 inch or roughly 16mm.
One more reason to switch to the metric system....
