If it says nominal or lumberyard 1" that means 3/4". If you buy 4/4 or larger unfurnished lumber, you can finish it to 3/4" or leave it a bit thicker if you want.

Could be bad cable, but my bet is the Mercruiser quadrant is jamming. A new motor makes for more trouble free boating, though. I would replace controls, too. Seastar makes nice controls if you don't go matching with your motor.
I assume the leading and trailing edges are straight and parallel. Try using a wider piece of wood, cut the angle first, then trim to size on the trailing edge. A fence is helpful, a bandsaw safer. Any variety of mahogany, Sapele, even white oak (harder and heavier) will work. Full lengths to avoid ...
The Monte Carlo shows a 90-016 rudder from Glenwood. That rudder is 7-1/2" by 12-1/2" with a 1-1/8" rudder port shaft and will need a 1-1/8" rudder port. Glen L stocks an 8-1/2" by 13" rudder with a 1" rudder shaft and would need a 1" rudder port. Part # 90-016M You do not state what rudder you have...

One of the nice features about using the plastic sheeting and a wall paper steamer is you can continue steaming while you bend and clamp. I'm not real sure if steaming plywood is a good idea, though. The high heat in steam could delaminate the glue. While marine plywood us subjected to boiling water...

The V6 should be just fine for the Barrel Back. These boats with the flat bottoms were never meant for high speeds. If Michigan motors can build one with fuel injection, you might want to consider that option. The newer V6 engines have the horsepower that the older V8 had. Enjoy.
Epifanes products are fantastic to use, but have some crazy solvents that eat up rollers and react to certain other products. Best to follow successful practices or do tests before using on large surfaces. This advice is true of any product line.
I used Chris Craft Red and Chris Craft Cordova from Sandusky. The stain was applied and rubbed out and allowed to dry a few weeks before sealing with several coats of System Three Silver Tip resin. Then the deck was coated with three coats of Epifanes two part Poly-U clear and buffed out. White 3M 4...
Are you planning on staining the wood to create some contrast from the decking to the cover boards? The best finish will be to stain, followed by a sealer like Pettits, then varnish. Some varnishes will attack epoxy and the finish will become gummy and not dry.
