My hull was water tight right after printing. I sealed any leftover gaps in the glue joints with epoxy as I put a thin strip of carbon fiber cloth over the seam to reinforce it. If you get leaks through the hull I would suggest coating the hull with a couple of layers of primer and then a couple of layrs of paint. That will seal the hull good. I did this on my Nordhavn 52 scale model as that one has a hull with infill and I didn't want to risk any water coming into the infill structure, so even though that hull has the right color after print I painted it anyway to make sure it's 100% water tight. But on my CB90 it worked without paint. A tip to make printed parts more solid is to increase the extrusion, I set mine to 1,1 so basically a 10% increased material flow and that makes the parts very solid (on the Prusa printers at least).
