Last night on WFN (World Fishing Network) at 9:30pm was a show called Ship Shape. I have seen it before and it is the best how-to show for boat there is. During this season he rebiuld a 21 foot center console form a crappy hull to a boat that could be mistaken for new. In the espsode I watch he fiberglassed in the console and put on the first coat of gel coat on the inside of the boat. He makes sure to go through every thing from safety to common mistakes. If you want to learn about marine how-to, it's your show.
Have fun, Jason
