Just the person I would hope chime in. I am going to be up in OC today for work and of course Minnies. Can I get some G10 locally? How about a source for Acrylic in OC?

I will be in SD county tomorrow if anyone knows of a source in SD?

Re: What kind of hardware for a Bow pulpit?

Here is what it looks like down below on the two aft posts of the pulpit.

How large of a piece of G10 should I laminate onto the roof?

Should I use thickened or just normal epoxy?

While I am at it getting supplies. How about a source for stainless steel also? My bow eye may need a large piece to cover the butyl tape seal.

I am pretty good when it comes to gluing with epoxy, but am too embarrassed to show the build ups up top I made to create a platform to mount the pulpit onto.

I like thickened epoxy, because it doesn't drip. Piece of g10 could be 3x5" maybe?

What I do is : bond the g10 underneath, then drill holes, also countersink above deck, then fill holes with un thickened epoxy to seal the core, then drill again with smaller holes.

Re: What kind of hardware for a Bow pulpit?

Garolite is a high strength, high density material that is used widely in the electronics industry in multi-level circuit card assemblies. The “-10” refers to the high strength variety (there are other numbers that represent heat, chemical resistance, etc). I have a diamond blade for my saber saw so I can easily cut different shapes. You can work it with carbide blades and drills. You will want to use thickened epoxy if you are mating to an ill regular surface. The backing plate only needs to be a little larger than its mate on the opposite side in most cases (and I think yours). I use lanocote on my screws for ease of removal when I set the epoxy and then ream out the holes with a drill after everything sets. Don’t forget to line your drill hole with epoxy as I think you are going through a bit of plywood core on the deck.

Jamestown Distributors sells G10 cut into various sizes that are handy for backing plates. Of course, you pay a price premium over the raw material, but don't you always?

or maybe not... a 6" x 6" x 1/4" piece is $19.26 at McMaster Carr. A 6 pack of 3" x 6" x 1/4" backing plates is $24-75 at Jamestown Distributors. So, much less expensive, AND cut to size.

Re: What kind of hardware for a Bow pulpit?

I ended up finding some G10 scraps at a plastic store locally. I got a few pieces for $10. Also got some Stainless Steel from the scrap pile at metal supplier.

I ended up cutting some backing plates custom. The last time I tried it i used way too thick steel and just got frustrated. This steel was still hard to work but not too bad. Photos to follow when finished.

Now what should I bed this with? I was going to line the bottom of the pulpit and the tapered holes with butyl tape but I also have some Life Caulk and some 4200. So far I have used butyl tape for all my mounting but the nature of this might have some flexing and need something more.

Also I am going to mount a bow eye for hoisting onto the trailer. What should I use to bed that?
