Thanks all! Unfortunatly the boat is now on the hard for winter storage in Port Clinton, Ohio. Would really, really love to have the work done in the Caribbean!! And sounds to be a bit less expensive

Ultra Suede it will be! Now if I can get the First Mate to decid on a color and pattern.

Trying to wake this thread up again - rather than start a new thread, as I need to reupholster ours this season. MarkJ - it's been a year or so - how has your suede stuff held out? How have others fared since original posts?
And - I've read stuff about layering hard and soft foam, but can't find the thread again . Does anyone know where it is, or what to do??

Its fine.

Whenever somthing is spilled on the fabric Nicolle hits the roof.... then she just pads it dry and maybe uses a little fresh water and any mark is gone.

She has only once had to take a whole cover off and hand wash it.... it the cusions in the traffic lane of the saloon.

This microfiber stuff is just amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

ENSURE you get the rest of the roll of fabric! a) youve paid for it anyway b) you can then recover in case of disaster

You don't need a marine trimmer to do the work, but you need someone who is expewrienced at curves and bends.... Go find a commercial vehicle seat recoverer. Great and cheap!
