I'm not sure you need a ton of supports under the hull but it is crucial to cut a bunch of sticks, one for each station with notches matching the width of each station. The edges of the hull fit into the notches and the sticks then keep the hull from spreading out or curling up/inward. Keep them in place 'till you are ready to join the hull and deck.
