Thank you! I couldn't find a "real" set of plans for this, so I based the build off of this image: http://www.mlahanas.de/Greeks/war/images/TriremePlan1.jpg

I used the three cross sections in the drawing as a starting point, and measured the width of the hull at various points in between the frames, to create additional supports to help the curved planks keep their shape.

There is a complete set of plans available from the Trireme Trust, but I wasn't able to find it at the time.
