Set of 7 molds for building a Rangley Lake boat. These molds are sized for constructing the hull with 1/2" x 3/4" cedar strips, then fiberglassing inside and out. Included are two books. John Gardener's "Building Classic Small Craft" contains the chapter on the Rangley Lake boat that I used to build mine, it includes the lines and table of offsets. Note that the lines and offsets show 8 stations. I did not build a mold for station 8, the cedar strips went from mold 7 to the transom in a fair curve without it. The second book is Gil Gilpatrick's "Building a Strip Canoe" which covers the construction process for the hull.
Note that the molds in the photographs are not set up at their proper spacing. I just did that to show them, when set up to build the boat they will be on 24" centers.
