The original plans call for hardwood planks (3/4") attached edge to edge (I assume with dowels or something similar), however I am unsure of my ability to do this adequately and am considering an alternative approach where I use plywood veneered on the inside and outside with hardwood. This is sort of like what I did for the transom and I am quite happy with that result. The veneers would only be in the visible areas. But yes, the plans are to have bright finished cabin sides with a multi-colored painted hull. Like in the drawing below. My cabin is shorter in length than this (2 windows versus 3) but the idea is basically the same.
