measurements ono the plans

Hi thereLooking at the plans of a tiki38 I see that there is sometimes differences between the written measurements and the one i measure with ruler. For example on the plan its written 1420mm...but if i measure with ruler it gives 143.7 mm, the scale is 1:10 so, this gives 1437 mm.Which measurement should one rely on, the one measured by ruler or the one written on the plan?See More

zipper on tiki38 mainsail
