Donít think I can get a job making wedding cakes anytime soon  :D

Maybe it's the color???   :D :D :D

Had you considered just a bigger base only?

I think his goal was to not leave the back of the toilet open (exposing internal machinery/guts)? Making a bigger base and a panel to cover the back, may have been another way to go.

One more layer of glass and I can fair and paint the outside. I will be glassing the inside as well so itís encapsulated to make it stronger and not let any smell or moisture impregnate the foam.

I did, for a very short moment. This is what it would look like.

I've always felt the best remodeling job is one where you can't tell anybody worked there.
That's a great design Logo and looks well thought out, I can't wait to see the finished product.

Probably, Iíve considered gelcoat but itís bridle and will crack over time I feel. Probably use a polyurethane paint, trick is going to be to match the colour as close as I can.

Thanks Eric! I canít wait till itís done either! Bought the boat just over a month ago and havenít been able to head out for more than a couple of hours because of the non functioning head. I hope I can get it all done in the next couple of weeks so I can head out for a weekend.

Quick update, got the first coat of gel coat on it today. Probably a total of 3 to 4 coats with wet sanding in between. Iíd like to achieve a flat polished surface.

Woohoo! Houston we have flushtoff! Took me far longer than I thought, work schedule and restrictions have made this a longer project than I had hoped for. All done now and the wait was worth it. I will post a link to the video as well but hereís a few pictures.
