Dutch term or phrase: stijlafstand
This term occurs several times in a specification for the construction of a mussel fishing boat. I had thought it meant 'vertical distance', but here are a couple of examples of the way it is used:
Stijlafstand volgens tekening
Stijlafstandschot versterkingen 500mm
Stijafstand schotten 500mm.

Has anyone worked in a (Dutch) shipyard?
My sympathies go out to anypone who, like me, is stuck indoors working on this sunny Sunday afternoon!
Thanks in advance.

Explanation:
See: http://www.davinci.nl/rechten/projects/BVEnet2/BVEnet2/opdra...
for a beautiful cross-section and some examples and info.

schot = bulkhead
stijl -> versterkingsprofielen = support (strengtehning) profiles

"Het kniebord vormt de verbinding van de stijlen op de dubbele bodem". In this case "kniebord" would be translated as "gusset" (Schuurmans), so it is possible that the "Stijlafstandschot" wouild be the "gusset".

"afstandstijl" could also be translated as "spacer"
You will have to look at your context to find the right combionation.
