Started to make the cockpit tray. Pvc foam sheet I had left from sailboard building from the 90s. This is perfect for making trays place it on the cockpit opening lay a heavy weight on it and then heat gun it and it will follow the shape of the cockpit. Finished off with blue foam. Will glass with glass cloth and carbon.
