I was able to find a sheet of marine plywood. It was the only sheet at the place, and it had a little damage, so they gave me a huge discount. 

Aiming to be be put together by next weekend.

I used Cabot brand Deck Correct from Lowe’s . It’s a flexible polycarbonate paint to fix deteriorating wood. I used it on a different aluminum boat 3 years ago and it held up great. You put it on with a roller and it makes a non skid surface that cleans up easily. It also dulls the sounds of things dropping on bare aluminum   I’m hoping it seals pinhole leaks/ loose rivets

i did use several coats of a spray paint self etching primer first. 

I used automotive spray paint on the inside sides and used the Deck Correct on the bottom, seats, and about 3 inches up the sides

That looks very nice! The grey paint makes for a very clean looking interior.

Redwood Bay Lumber.  20756 Clark Ave, Blountstown, FL 32424
I bought Mahogany there for my Hawk project when I was down there 4 months ago.  Prices are right and worth the expense.
Can't seem to post a map, but google it.  You will have to join several boards for the outside, but I have a friend in Sopchoppy that can do that for you if you don't have the tools.  He is a Boatwright.

I’m coming along on getting the Fisher back in the water. But having a hard time finding marine plywood for the transom. Any recommendations on an alternative?  I might be able to find some cypress but I’m not sure it’s worth the cost. 

I’d be painting the wood both sides with “Deck Correct” would that eliminate the problem with pressure treated plywood?
