"I agree, but that would require both epoxy and epoxy work.  I'm thinking yellow pine frames and deck screw fasteners.  Basically a boat that I cant be too sad about destroying on boney class III/IV water."

Bennett,

Sorry this took a while. If you are marking centerline its best to use a string line. I don't snap it I carefully mark under the line then connect the marks with a strait edge. If I am feeling really lazy I borrow the 12' strait edge from my friends upholstery shop and put it on that way. Marking a strait centerline on all four sides of the blank is critical. Have fun and I can't wait to see the finished product!
