Freedom 15 plans

Post by Bill Bach » Thu Dec 13, 2007 10:38 pm

On my recently purchased plans for the Freedom 15' two of the aft stations, #10 & #11 are color coded.
#10 is outlined in green & #11 is outlined in red. Is there any reason for this?

don't think so. I recall that my plans were similarly colored. I can't find them right now. I photocopied them so I could cut them up for use. No apparent loss of value without the color.

Station Mold Colors

Post by Steve » Fri Dec 14, 2007 2:52 am

Hi Bill,
You are quite right the aft station molds are colored, if you look close you'll notice that they are, black,red blue & green. I can only imagine that its because they some of them converge to almost the same point at the keel line if you see what i mean, the seperate colors try to make them easey to identify at that point. I hope i have helped because i had the same issue on my set of plans, & this is the only reason i could come up with, unless anyone else has other suggestions?
Best Regards
Steve :thinking

The colours are to help you differentiate the lines .......Joan
