I'm just about to start the Sasquash 14 and am making out my order for fiberglass. My question is if I glass the inside with cloth do I need to put fiberglass tape over the seams?

No. Cloth is enough to strengthen the seams.

Some builders apply an extra layer on the external hull bottom for abrasion resistance. But that's not required.
