    I am replacing my transom in my 1985 center console Bonito 17'. I have the old transom completely cut out from side to side and about 2 feet of floor from the transom toward the front. The inner and outer skin of the transom is completely removed also. Everything is ready to go back in and I plan on using epoxy resin for fiberglassing. I have heard and read so many ways to layer the fiberglass with all different weights and cloths that I am now confused and second guessing myself about what my orignal plan was. What im asking is what cloth do I need to start with and do I need to alternate cloth, mat, biaxel? I figured this would be the best place for a several good straight foward answers. Thanks
