Epoxy is pretty strong glue, and it only takes a little to hold a hull together temporarily.
Tacking on the inside is neater, since the fillets will cover up the tacks later. If you have rounded off the ply edges (there's a CLC shop tip about that) you'll have a little notch to push goop into, even at the ends. Use a softish filleting mix as Randy says, and make mini-fillets with your finger. Let it cure for a couple of days before pulling the wires out, epecially if your shop is unheated. A substitute for a syringe is a poly bag with a 1/8" hole cut in the corner. Not as precise, but it can hold more goop than a syringe can.
