As you’ve noted (Transform > Scale) doesn’t always result in exactly what you want with only 4 places after the decimal available and in DelftShip there appears to be no way around that limitation. In the past I’ve tried multiple iterations with very limited success.

I know this may sound weird but since a foot is smaller than a meter it follows that 0.0001′ is less of a variation than 0.0001m would be … so if you are willing to trust the units conversion you may be able to get just a scooch closer than otherwise possible.

Considering that getting a substantial boat built to the nearest centimeter (never mind a 1/10 of a millimeter) over its whole length/width may be good practice may I suggest you need not be so concerned?
