I'm building a CC for my riverhawk and was wondering what a good layup would be. Supplies on hand 6oz and 1700 biax w epoxy, not enough core left to piece together so was thinking solid glass. My idea was out>in 6oz/2mm coremat/1700, would this work? Any help appreciated guys!

Without coring you are gonna need some thickness. I would start with
[email protected] and top with [email protected] 6oz

Core the area for helm and controls though.

If you feel you need more just add to 17oz to the inside a layer at a time. Most consoles in production boats are all chopper gun or csm
Would coremat work well as a stiffener?

I was going glass all the panels flat and use some kind of right angle and use cabosil to glue together, then lay the 6oz on the outside. I think I might just find a used one somewhere though, just need one small enough

Where are you located? I got one that I may be able to part with. It’s new and uncut. Nice small footprint no forward seating/livewell.

Mock it up out of cardboard (See Firecats build). Then build your panels on a flat sheet and construct.

Or build it out of 1/8 ply and cover with glass, coat the inside with epoxy resin.

This is a weekend project.
