Very roughly depending on temperature resin is usable for upto 10 mins, it starts to go rubbery between 10 and 20 mins and hard in 30 - 40 mins.

I would use csm cut into long strips.

Plan what you are going to do, how you are going to do it, what tools you need to do the job and to clean up afterwards, do the job in small easy stages, dont try to rush. If you are going to do the inside then do that first as mistakes wont show and you can always grind it out and start again

Go to Glassplies in Southport. Past the hospital take second exit on roundabout at Tesco (Meols Cop Rd.) and then right after the lights into Butts Lane ->Crowland St.. On the right just under the bridge. They will give you a wee booklet describing the process.

If you want a neat job there's all sorts of stuff you need to learn. From the correct time to gel to tearing the CSM to prevent a hard edge. You'll need a few tools. Glassplies will advise you. BTW, as far as I'm aware, there's no such thing as CSM cloth. There is CSM (chopped strand mat) and various cloths, other materials and combinations.

You need to do a bit of swatting and you should practise before you set about your boat.

You've just put a bloody big grin on my face mate. All though Crowland street is some distance from me and I may break a sweat doing the 3 min travel
Cheers

I'd use 3 layers of 300gsm mat and as it's your first go i'd do the corners as described here, http://www.cfsnet.co.uk/acatalog/met...glaminate.html

I would ensure that there are no sharp corners for the glass to go around. I would add a fillet of resin mixed with Qcell or similar, between your deck and console, it will make the glassing much easier and stronger. If you ask the glass supplier he should know what I am talking about. The more catalyst you put in the resin and the hotter the day. the faster the resin will go off.
