"This is the best advice. For a hand layup, you want a 1:1 ratio. Weigh the glass you plan to layup.. add the same total weight of mixed resin. You won’t waste resin this way or buy too much or too little"

Chris, congrats on the new boat. You might visit montanaboatbuilders.com and look through the "gallery" pics. There is a couple of "down shots" of his Kingfisher there. You could get good visual of the layout of the boat for the fishermen in both ends of the boat. You could also get a pair of dividers out and do some "measurements" to get the proportions close.
