Re-decking options for a GRP Bruce Roberts 34 hull....

Cheers all,

I've recently purchased a glass hull Bruce Roberts 34.

The hull is in great shape; no damage, osmosis, or construction gaffs.
The topside is, well, wood and needs some special attention paid to it.
The interior in unfinished and this is good because I have some keen ideas on what to do with it.

I'm assessing ALL of my decking options, so my question is this: Does anyone know of a company in Canada or N/E US that can mold/create glass topsides?

Many thanks,
Tman

Do you mean replace the wood with non-skid, or a whole deck top? If just replacing the wood with non-skid, there is an excellent article in the Mar/Apr 2005 issue of Good Old Boat on that.

Hi John,

Thanks for the heads-up on the article...I did grab that on already.

I'm considering all of my options and preparing a cost matrix...

Of course, I'd like to take the route that gives the best value/benefit for the cost. A friend had suggested exploring replacing the deck entirely, so I'm looking into that one here.

Cheers,
Tman
