Something like this for shape? You could shear the 1x10 aluminum into long tapered pieces and use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clinker_(boat_building) or lap strake construction; or flange the edges and use rivets on the inside of the angles.

Or run the strips laterally and make it like an armadillo, with exposed rivets.

Edit:Also ... Plastidip.

Or are you talking about the shop floor (traffic)?
*The back of the Chris Craft is what I'll end up with,like a sawed-off streamlined half-body.
*The fairing has twist but not much else.A single piece of aluminum,longitudinally, would be better than joining narrow strips.
*I've talked myself into fiberglass.I can tape them on for the next trip,then pull them at the tunnel to compare results and isolate any effect associated with the difference.
*As to the Plasti-dip,I want as much sheen as I can get.The enamel dries very glossy.
*The term 'traffic' is used by painters to describe a full wet-out paint condition,after which any further spray application would create a run or sag (which is hard to deal with in a paint system which can't tolerate spot repairs without revealing a cosmetically unappealing blended area).
