CSM or Cloth

Ok, we will be 'glassing our new transom and console (yet to be made) and I was wondering which of the above would be best to use? Pros and cons between the 2? If cloth which one? Open or closed weave.

Too many options!!

Hi

Guess here is much more qualified person's then me to comment but on the transom i would start with one layer 300G CSM and then continue with some heavy Woven Roving pending on how much aditional strenght You need. WR is not the easiest to laminate but IMHO strengthen much more than CSM.

On odd shaped(like a console) objects have used combination of CSM and Biaxial. Biaxial settles much easier round sharp bends/corners than CSM.

Good luck!

For the transom I'd use Combi, which is a woven with a chop stuck to it, nice and easy to use. Put it chop side down, maybe a couple of layers, then finish with a chop over the top to keep it all neat and prevent any spikey bits.

For the console, I'd built it entirely out of chop, with some localised stiffening where needed, especially where the helm will be bolted.
