It should be included in the package. It is a simple drawing showing how to cut and frame a hatch for a locker in any small boat seat.
Reid has a temporary copy that I created for you, email him please.

For the fiberglass: what you show is fine. Don't worry about the gaps. You could use thinner glass but you have is fine.

For the pintles (rudder pivots), 3/8" diameter is fine. Build the rudder first, put your pintles and gudgeons on dry and check against the transom. Offset one of the gudgeons a little so that you engage one pintle at a time.

You boat looks good..
