    Default Re: Flat GRP seat panel supplier

    If it's a seat base I imagine this won't be seen. Therefore why not do wood and paint. Easy strong and cheap. Or have I missed somthing?

    Suggest Alistair Simpson in Davis's Boatyard just inside the entrance to Cobbs Quay on the right.

    My answer would be to find an old abandoned grp boat and take a battery powered angle grinder with you and cut out a section of deck or roof

Another company based in Shaftesbury has promised to email a quote but I've had nothing back after quite a while. Paul Shotton as recommended above may be worth trying then.
    It feels very much like you would be better using plastic plywood/kingboard than GRP. But if you want Grp there are plenty of custom suppliers. I've used plenty of these suppliers, but 550 is very much the right price for this and if you want both sides in flat gel coat then 550 is cheap, so I'll refrain from listing them.
