Turtle Platform?

I'm looking to build a platform for my turtles 55g and was thinking I could just get build a plexi box the size of the light groove on one side and have a partial of the bottom gone with a ramp to climb up. I've always had them a basking platform in the tank but they're getting bigger and i'd like to be able to keep it full so they have more swimming room.

Question is what size plexi will I need and what silicone? they're both about six inches long so they do have some weight to them.

If anyone's made something like this i'd love to see some ideas. I searched and found some premade penplaxx or something but a few said turtles escaped... I can't have this my doxie's arent smart enough to stay away from those powerful jaws

See if you can get any ideas from here. Silicone does not stick to plastic well.


The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
