If the foam is good for $700 you could buy a nice sailrite machine and teach yourself to sew. Just cut the stitching on the old cushions and use the material from that as a template to make new ones.

Then when you trade up you can take the sailrite with you.

This is on my summer project list. I need new curtains and some monitor dodger/bimini work and storage bags. Just cheaper to do it myself and take the skills and machine with me as I move on.
