Aluminum frame? Yes but its the job of your fabricator to make it sturdy enough and to recommend good anchoring points.

Stationary use will be fine but some CS25 owners have installed small towers.
The boat can take it.

the sides of the ttop I would like to make them in foam is possible.

The weakest point is the welding zone when you use aluminium.

I think your first side laminate is too stiff to torture well.

Is that the goal? 200g no mat will torture easier...otherwise you may have trouble bending..

Also, at the intersections; you can make a 3mm relief cut with an electric planer and avoid a fairing headache on the exterior.

thank you for the advice, fortunately I rounded and grouted everything well, then I laminated, and it came out well.

Your foam/glass work sure looks nice. This is going to be a very nice boat :wink:
