Great work on the boat, first of all, great progress!

"The only downside to the Dado cut is that you have to fill all the holes in-between the wood and boat with peanut butter"

I'm not convinced you need to. If you slathered some neat epoxy into each hole to seal it, I would think that would do it. What was your reasoning for needing to fill them?
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

I'm filling them because I don't want the wood to get in there and cause anything to rot.

Im thinking about putting only one skeg on the bottom of the boat as opposed to two skegs. Anyone have any experience or advise in this area and the difference between one or two skegs?

One skeg is the way to go, There is absolutely no advantage of having two and may be detrimental, there are better ways to help in bottom shaping.
