Never ceases to amaze how poorly prepped so many boats going offshore are, the absence of forethought given to the simplest, most basic stuff...

Such a thing can always be solved with a set of fitted covers/sheets over the upholstered material... My settees are Ultrasuede, but they are always covered on a passage, when I know I might be sleeping on them in wet gear, or whatever...
