    This is an idea that I have considered for the bridge but could be used on the rear

      What is the material?? Looks light and maybe comes in pre-made sheets of some sort.

    I was thinking I wood use SS support tubing and use wood framing and plywood and then bolt it to the cabin and fiberglass everything to look close to the gel coat that is on the boat.
    But did not do it because I bought a different boat.

        The process to get it right is really involved. A friend of mine was building a mold in the early ‘90’s and was commenting on the hours of block sanding the plug then building the mold. Doing a one off could be built starting with a plywood or composite center and covering in both directions. Finishing the underside isn’t as critical as the top and exterior edges. There would be a ton of sanding of the raw surface, then the gel coat and adding nonskid. $5K sounds like a lot, but if you check into your cost of materials, I think you will find the price more palatable. My sense is, at least in the PNW, that might be the installed cost.

          Friend built one for his 38. Looks better than those from LaConner. He did it all in fiberglass starting with a mould he built. He also made a matching bridge cover.
