I've had the plywood for over 3 weeks now and I'm finally seeing real progress.

I've started an album for the build here:

Flipped it over and started to fillet and tape the seams. I set a block in putty for the bow eye.

I think I'm going to like using a cheap silicone spatula for a filleting tool.

My fillets are much better looking than on my Cheap Canoe.

Now that all of the major interior work except the seat top is done, I've flipped it to finish the bottom glass work. I used the 2X4 bottom stiffeners to build a real stand to hold the boat for the remainder of construction. My belt sander got a good workout grinding off the spot welds and roughing the chine shape. I also cut the skeg.
