I am a former shipwright. Without going into how we did it in the old days, laminated oak strips, epoxied are probably the easiest for owners to do and have a solid hull. I would check with a couple good wood surveyors before using plastic. The plastic could make that part of the hull stiffer and cause other parts to work too much in a sea. Plastic could shatter, fasteners pull out and so on.
