Hopefully the following will help.  I inserted the drawing I found on the net into Turbo Cad and scaled as close as I can then came up with the dimensions I show.  The drawing was too small to be able to see the dimensions they already show for some of the planking, but the numbers I show should be very close.  Not knowing the scale you are building to I put real world dimensions but you can easily figure out what they are in your scale and see if the kit supplied properly thicknessed planking material.
