Looks good so far. What do you plan to use for sheeting?

I'm not sure , I went to joann fabrics and looked at some bass wood seems like it will not have a lot of strength any suggestions !

I go with 1/32nd plywood, easy to bend to shape. You could go with 1/32nd or even 1/64th plywood and then light weight fiberglass cloth over it.

I built this boat back in the day with a queen bee 074. for power. Might want to consider (while you can) a flood chamber so you can relax when it hauls booty in the chop.

I am thinking a 540 electric motor for power with a external drive !
I can't find any 1/32 ply so I bought 1/32 bass wood for the skin .I hope this works

Straight up is all I ask
Go brushless ! 28mm inrunner would be more power than a 540 but smaller and lighter .
