Good morning Matt ,I have a couple of questions about the freedom stip build.First ,I've been ready Nick Schades book and in the set up of the strong back he says to go by the measurements on your plans for the placement of the forums.I didn't find those measurements on the plans,next he says to place the end forms at the ends and the middle form at the widest point,is the widest piont the middle of the boat and what is the distance from the middle to the end forms. The plans I have is the 15'freedom strip.

The Freedom plans were created before I recommended his book but you can use the 4" waterline reference and draw your backbone box on top of the midpoint of it.

#8 is the widest form. #8 to the tip of the bow is 8'2. To the stern is 7'2. Note: these are on-center dimensions. Not from edges of forms/stations.

Make your backbone slot to fit the cross section dimensions of the backbone. All the slots would be in the same relative position centered on the 4" waterline reference.

The forms/stations are 12" apart on center. So just deduct as you go along.

Kayak Craft is in my library of boat building books. http://www.bookdepository.com/ has it cheap with free shipping right now.

Thanks Matt ,I'm trying to take more time with this one .It's certainly more work than the laker was.Some of it has been a little tricky but I've worked through it by watching Nick's videos and reading Ted Moore's book.

The strips measure out at 1" with a 30 degree angle on each side. I'm useing 1x6 western red cedar and set my blade for 1/4" at 30 degree angle so I only make one cut.
