Back in the good old days (30 / 40 years ago), one used cascamite (I still like it), but what does people use now ?

Also what is used to protect inside and outside of ply hulls ?

Cascamite. sometimes difficult to buy but definitely still a high quality glue, not so good on plastic / wood joints but wood alone it is superb. Modern glues will always have a place in the tool box, (horses for courses)
Protecting your hull, wooden hulls coat inside and out with a runny resin then add glass cloth to the outer hull, I use .7oz cloth or a stocking, depends on the hull size,
