Slip covers for cushions

Does anyone have recommendations for a company that can make decent elastisized sunbrella fabric slip covers for cockpit and settee cushions. We recently placed a new monohull in the charter fleet and are trying to find a temporary solution that won't be cost prohibitive and will give some protection from charter abuse. Thanks in advance.

Any upholstery shop can do it. Shop around.

DIY

Get small fitted sheets for things like cribs and odd sized mattresses and then use bungee chord type elastic strings to pull the bottom/back together. Then they're washable as well

Good suggestion, Future Stories. The bare bones cheapest way to do it is probably with sheets from Goodwill or Salvation Army type stores....
