      Welcome to home boatbuilding Michael.
      As Gene suggests, get Jim's book, and then build the boat.  The answer to most of your questions regarding hardware are discretionary in nature - with common sense you can do what works for you.  There are many pictures of boats on the net and I use them for hardware "inspiration".
      Legal requirements for registration will come from your state DOT.  Lighting requirements in navigable waterways are set by the Coast Guard.  You'll have plenty of time to research these topics on the net while waiting for the glue to cure.
      Lastly, when you get your Campjon floating and ready to cruise some great loop segments, look me up.  I'm building an AF4 with the intent of cruising sections of the great loop.

      Jim's book is a great guide on glassing, Duckworks is another great source for info and of course hardware for your boat.

      Oh and what about drain plugs.  It seems to me that I ought to put at least one drain plug in the rear of the cabin (to drain the cabin into the cockpit) and one in the cockpit to drain overboard while on the trailer (and maybe it will drain while planing, I dunno).  Do I put in drain plugs?  How to make drain plugs?  Where to place drain plugs?  All the above.  Thanks, Michael Ash
