The Bearmountain Boats plan for the Freedom 17 came with full size pattern for the station molds. I had a local print shop make a copy of them so I could keep the originals nice. I cut out the copy and laid them out on 1" particle board, traced them, then carefully cut them out with a band saw.
There were minor differences in shape between the forward and aft station molds, so keeping them in order was important. I labeled each one with its appropriate number (1-8) and whether is was forward or aft, so as to avoid mixing them up. The stern and bow pieces were also slightly different, so they were labeled as well. A hole saw was used to cut evenly spaced holes near the outside edge of the bow and stern pieces so that the ash strips, which would be bent around the mold and laminated could be held fast with a clamp.
Next up: assembling the strong back and fastening the station molds to it.
