Well Brian, a few pictures will help no end, what type of boat is it and the method of construction.
If I am right its a bulkheads, keel and chine with sheet ply outer skins, then the choice of glue is often personal to the modeller.
I tend to use alyphatic wood glue and pins or clamps for the basic construction.
Followed by a skin of Ezekote and super fine glass cloth for the Hull.
Other members will offer you different options as we all have personal preferences.
I hope this gives you some help, but never be afraid to ask for help or advice.
