2 year old boat and the seats were shot.
I think the owner may have cleaned them with somthing bad  i never seen any so new so bad.  Anyway good for me



They look great, Mike!  What had happened to the original ones?  did the seams break? or was the vinyl just cracked?  People will never admit to putting something too harsh on their seats, so if the owner really did use something he shouldn't have we'll never know.

Wow, Mike.  Those are just beautiful. 

I am simply a "shop grunt" and I know how much work goes into cranking out nice "skins" and having everything ready for installation.  But I know you install them, too!  I am dazzled.  :)


Great job Mike. Nice work as usual.

Jeep doc that sounds right i had a half dday removing and a half installing and 5 sewing.
June they were dried out some seams letting go from some help from the sun and discolored
The wide made it a point to find out what to use to cleam and keep the seats looking good.
This was the top of the helm seat
Btw this was the seat with the springs i showed snd needed hogrings
Thanks all it fell good when the owner loves it i hot a $150 tip;)


Thanks mike hopefully I can meet my deadline


WOW was that vinyl sunburned  :o  Makes me think the manufacturer didn't use UV protected marine vinyl.  With the damage all facing the sky, I'd bet it's more from sun than anything they used, though harsh chemicals certainly won't help.

Real nice Mike! Can't believe thats 2 years old! I redid one this winter and it wasn't 1/2 as bad after 7 years. And the boat sank twice.
