I wasn't allowed to open up a rib to get a frame under a bridge in st andrews harbour - my idea was as you accelerate the back of rib kicks in and lower back... we ended flooding hull then pushing a frame of top with a heavy weight ie me hanging at the back !

The things you do not to pay harbour fees!
