Can anyone advise what the standard cockpit table (H470e) is made of? Mine is a smokey colour and slightly opaque plastic about 8mm and is perhaps polycarbonate or acrylic maybe?  Would like to make a bigger version but based on the same material, or something else suitable. 
Thanks.

I have seen this table material on my neighbours boat. From touch and sound ( when you put a beer can down ) I assume it is Polycarbonate ( PC). 
The best way would be to remove one half of the table and pay a visit to your local acrylic shop ( lighting ) . They will know the material and the exact spec.

Whether it is PC or PMMA (Acrylic) make sure that they use a UV resistant grade (either coated or insitu )
