If you want to make a GRP hull, you have to build the whole hull, unless what you're building is totally symmetrical, and the Surcouf is nothing of the sort I'm afraid.
GRP is a very good material to use in sub construction , but I've seen good subs made from all manner of materials. It's best if you choose a material you are experienced and comfortable working with. If that is wood, then use it, just make sure you seal it very thoroughly.
