Looking at replacing.

Questions-
1)should I just take what I have to a local boat Upholstery place and have them try and match what I have?
2) Does anyone have the specs on foam density and fabric / material used for my year main ship?
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks Jeff.

Mainship is now out of business and maybe its OEM suppliers as well. Also the cushions on our new 2006 34T were a POS- the foam slowly fell apart and left crumbles underneath every time we used the boat.

I would go to someone who either specializes in marine canvas and upholstry or one who understands the issues of sunlight and foam life. Get them to make you replacement cushions including new foam.

Any canvas shop should be able to provide samples of fabrics and colors. The "House of Foam " in Parkville, Md 21234 ,not far from your location, has a vast inventory of foams. Take your seat, cushion and compare density.

Get a quote from a non marine upholstery shop as well, it might save some $.

Thanks for comments. I guess I will shop around with the cushions.
BruceK,
Those cushions are for a pre 2003 model, will not fit but Thanks for the heads up.
Dave,
I'll also check out the place in Parkville.
Jeff.

The advantage of using a shop that specializes in marine canvas and upholstery is, they understand the marine environment and what materials and techniques will stand up to it. Sometimes it's worthwhile to pay for that experience.

Cheaper today is not always cheaper in the long run.
