Newbie 70s Cabin Cruiser Question...HELP !

I have 'inherited' a 70s-somthing Sabre Crusier. It is beautiful. But, it needs a lot of TLC.

One major problem is that all the cushions of the 'bed' have mildewed, molded and need to be thrown away.

What is the BEST material to make new cushions out of? The best fabric? The best type of foam? Are there substraits out there that are mildew/mold resistant?

Thank you soo soo very much!!!

Also check out good price on sunbrella, I use the upholstery grade and like it.
Foam by Mail, foam products, cushions, mattresses, pillows, seats, sound proofing, memory foams, mattress, pillow, cheap foam and free shipping. They have memory foam which I use for my v-berth (my bed). I use the HD36 regular foam for my main cabin. I cut the bulk foam with a electric knife (works great) but the Foam factory will cut to specifications too.

You might try contacting Sabre in Casco Bay Maine to see who makes their cushions. Maybe you can get replacements for less money and faster than making custom ones.
