jlanng,

have you looked at Vetus polywood? Vetus make this stuff that comes in sheets and is suppsoed to be really good for things like that. Its quite expensive I think though. Get yourself a Vetus catalogue and have a look!

I'm doing an advanced composite wing project at uni at he moment and I need to practice doing resin infusion so I might make myself a carbon fibre dash board for me new rib

Cheers

Tim

Completley made my Dash from scratch using a plastic sheet (perpex) with cut out holes for the Plotter, VHF and Depth sounder. I mounted a SS tube either side as slide rails and covered with some black vinyl to give a good finish. I then mounted two SS tubes of smaller diameter that would slide up inside the larger ones and mounted them on the console to match the pitch of the ones already screwed to the Dash, with some quick release electrical conections and a rubber bungy cord to hold the dash in place I have my removable console dash.
Will post some pics when I've taken the photo's as I don't think I've taken any photo's of it since installing it at the begining of summer.

Its a nice neat job and didn't cost me anything apart from the electrical connections.

Andy

The Bananashark Leisure RIB.

We thought it was a very stylish design. A professional outfit all round.

As prommised from my earlier post, a few pics outlining the basic build of my console. Nothing fancy but very effective.I've no problems with the compass position, it's right under the VHF so I was amazed myself when installing the dash had no effect!!
