Thin is usually floppy. I have made my own with one layer of cloth and one layer of mat, over thin jel coat, then reinforcing sides with light aluminum angle, shaped to fit, and glassed right in. The trick is to squeegee the resin around on your layers to keep it thin. Use a good epoxy resin also. This is not necessarily cheaper than buying by the time you make a good mold.
