Please check also the booklet - on page 25 is the same shown plus additional drawings of the line construction.
This one on the drawing seems also to be not correct, due to the fact, that it is not central but moved to the left (which would surprise me).
Unfortunately Franco Fissore is not a member here, so we can not ask him directly

I guess it is version A, means the top of these stiffeners are somehow horizontal, or following parallel to the frame form.....
between them are the bilge pumps installed in four boxes, this detail you can see explained in the Monograph booklet at page 79 Drawing 8

As much, as like #5, I am afraid it might be a bit big (prominent) for the scale (IMHO). Will you add treenails to the deck as well? If yes, can you make samples with three nails in-place? I suggest #6 ;)
