Post by: jeepdoc on August 14, 2011, 06:23:03 PM
My second attempt at marine upholstery on a old bayliner. used mostly the old foam steamed some parts to make it look better all in all everything considered came out pretty nice.

Looks like a top notch job. The owner should flip when he see it. With work like that you should stay pretty busy.

Beauty! Nice work!

But all that lovely upholstery sure makes the carpet look like crap, eh?

That looks sharp! Love the two-color scheme. Everybody around here always wants the original 5 color scheme on their Bayliners.  ??? Can't get out of the eighties, I guess.
Great job!

Thanks jojo lucky for me this guy hated that color layout and hated the fact that the welts running across the cushions left marks in his girlfriends butt. Thats why none of the cushions have welt on them. That made it an easy sell on that color layout

Very nice, same boat as I just made a cover for apart from mine had an outboard  :( to work round. I might show him your pictures, make him want to update  ;D
One question. Your have seams in the centre of the seats, is that as per the originals ? Or your own idea ?

So Jeepdoc what did the owner think. I bet he was nervous when you told him this was only your second job.
Or did you not tell him? :-X

So whats next?

No he knew he is a friend of my son. He could not believe his  eyes it turned out very well I was very happy as well. Next ? dont know boating season winding down here and economy pretty crappy. Looking at doing my jeep wranglers interior its a cool green color thinking of dark gray or black leather with leather dyed the same color as exterior for the inserts. I really want to do automotive interiors or I do have some old 70s buckets out of some older mopars I may redo and sell.
Thanks for asking

I was at a boat ramp near the coast looking for someplace to launch my kayak. Next to the ramp was an information board and a business owner had posted a flyer for boat tops and cushions. Cheep advertising.

Just a thought, caught my attention.
