Replacing foam on couches and V berth

The foam on my saloon couches and the V berth is getting old, in some places it is firm and some it is soft.

The covers aren't in bad shape.

I'd be interested to hear what other people have done to replace the foam, any positive vendor experience, and any advice you have.

The options seem to be, in order of cost :

1) Go to local foam shop, keep the covers. (blue velour)

2) Order online from an RV-type custom cushion place, with new covers

3) A local marine upholstery specialist.

The only problem I have with (1) is that I'd like to make the cushions thicker, and with the old covers I'm limited to the 4" or so I have right now.

Thanks in advance!
