Sounds a little high, but still in the ball park. I was quoted for my Oday 23 (6 cushions, new foam, new fabric, vinyl mesh bottoms, zippers) about $1300, but that was about 8 years ago. The guy I talked to specialized in marine upholstery and good naturedly told me that I wouldn't like the numbers; he said he almost never gets small boat jobs because they are too expensive relative to the price of the boat. I would check out a standard household upholsterer. I spoke to one and they said they would do the same work for about $700 or $800. I still didn't think it was worth it as I don't spend a lot of time below and I don't think my cushions are that bad...
