UnlikelyVoyager - What a great project even if it is in a somewhat compressed time schedule. How are you attaching the keel to the frames? By screws? I recommend silicone bronze. For added measure, you can epoxy (thicken first with silca), then screw.
How are you doing the transom? Plywood or sold wood like mahogany? If solid wood, and you need to glue up several pieces to get the width needed, you should start that glue now, before you get much further. If plywood, you should consider epoxy-ing the end grain to seal it. If plywood, I hope that it's marine grade.
I've done this job. PM me if you have any questions.
