It's also common to add a little to the chine if necessary. I ended up doing that in order to get the angle right between the chine and sheer.

Yes. Like Hoodman, I had to laminate some to the chine. It helped me to draw a dividing line down the chine. Top half for the chine to keel... bottom half from chine to sheer.

Been busy the last month, starting to make progress again. Need to trim a bit more off the bottom lip but i may wait to do that until I flip it.

Sanding down the glue, then prepping for fiberglass. My understanding is its recommended to do a full epoxy coat, sand, then apply fiberglass is that right?

You don't have to but that is what I did since I found that the ply soaked up a good bit of epoxy. I felt that would make it easier to wet out the cloth.

You can, won't hurt at all, but you can go right to fiberglassing.
I laid the cloth down first, then I tried the pour it on and squeegee it in, method and worked it back and fourth until I could see all the wood was wet underneath. The sides, I laid the cloth, then rolled it out. Results were the same.
