I am ready at any time to set up the molds but I am going to take some more time and make some of the other components so that when it comes time to set things up it will be a minimum of time. Knees, thwarts, oar lock bases, floor boards etc.

Steam box for bending the laminations for the 6 knees that are required.  Cold bending resulted in a lot of broken pieces of oak.   Thanks for the advice Greg Rossel
