The most common is Fibre glass. The medium is known as GRP, Glass reinforced plastic.
To build your boat using GRP you will need to get hold of a mould. The first layers are the Gel Coat then the Fibre glass. Lots of self help sites arround.

Fiberglass was the early application of spinning common products into fabric, and bonding them with resins to make them strong and still lightweight. You will want to start your search at the Composites Store how-to tutorial videos:
