Thank you Gregg! I will make sure and get all of those as well!

As far as the differing options, would you advice one over the other?

and I have not figured out foam yet, still contemplating buying Terry's if I end up near Indianapolis this summer but not sure how much I should put under the floor and fill in the engine boxes

It would be hard to comment on other fiberglass supply company's without ever dealing with them, and just as hard to comment on your choose of materials (wood/composites, resin, glass).
Many of us have got our stuff through Express, so we know there good.

Glastron's and most other boats were slapped together as fast as possible and have lasted 30, 40 and even 50 years.
As long as you use good quality resin / glass / wood and take your time to mix and laminate, your boat should last another 50 years.
