Roof all laminated she's a big one at 90" wide x 154" long (finished size). I used 2 layers of 1/4" marine and butt joined the seams overlapping the second layer seams by 18" . First I secured the bottom layer to the mold with fiberglass nails to hold them in place while I laminated the second layer. I weted out both sides with 2 heavy clear coats then one layer of creamy pb. I was hoping the fiberglass nails would break free easy from nailing down the first layer......thank god they did :)

Dry fitting the roof before glassing just to be sure it all fits up nice!!

What a sweet moment seeing the complete profile after all this work. Other than the roof, some lids, hatches and doors I am done glassing the hull what a wonderful thing. Of course we all know we are never really done playing with epoxy & glass.

Registered just to say you've done an amazing job!  I really respect a craftsman and it is a privilege to get to see their work.  I might build a GA when I retire and your thread, and others in the forum, will be of tremendous help.  Thanks for taking us along on the journey!

Chuck, your bout is a thing of beauty.  It came out perfect.  Your back deck looks like a football field.

Your boat looks amazing. It won't be long and the motors are going.
 Thanks for the photos along the way they help.

When you get a chance....  can you get a closer shot of the interior and exterior PH roof to upper side panel joint.  It looks like you have some extra support there.
   Also which Suzuki dealer did you use?   Would you send others there?

I'm using Maximum Marine in Eugene, can't say how there service is yet until the motors get here. I have heard good thing about them. See if the drawing answers your question on the roof to window set-up. It not all in yet so I gave you my drawing
