Re: Fibreglassing ply

I would flox a couple of nut plates into the foam then install a screw in them with a long shank and put some vaseline on it.  Glass around the screw with your layups.  # layers should do it.  Unscrew them and grind flat. You now have a mounting pad with nut plates. As for the Pitot.  Say with the aluminum if you like, but install some foam behind it and around the tube and form to look like a modern Pitot from a bonanza.  It will povide strength without much weight, but also will provide less drag than the tube itself.
