glassing in a console

I am wondering if glassing in a console on the outside only is sufficent or does it need to be glassed in on the inside and outside?

If glassing on the outside is sufficent how many layers of CSM would be needed to bond the console to the deck

RC use sikaflex to position them and then the same thickness as the console, so about 4-5mm

Console

I used a bed of sikaflex 292 drilled and countersunk the flange: screwed down every 3 inches With stainless steel screws, then 3 layers of fibreglass. You'll see this if you can pick up my delta refurb thread.

Cheers

3 layers of 450 gsm does it for me,
but I also lay a bed of two or three layers wet glass to sit it on again 450gsm. A few c sunk screws to await the bed to go off then away you go ,

Never had one come away yet and I have done a few over the years , ensure well prepped , and good clean in acetone it will not go any place

Mine and my seat pods are only galssed in from the inside. No problems yet, and we've had the full force of Martini II being fended off the console at Mont St Michel!
