Re: Salon cushion redo
Keep in mind that you can use any upholstery company to do the change - it doesn't have to be a marine related company.
Opening up your cushions on the back and changing the foam is not near as bad as having them remade. Check for a local "JoAnn's" or whatever your area has for a major sewing shop and make a visit, maybe they have a bulletin board that has folks listed that do that kind of work on the side. The folks at the sewing store can give you advice and how to's if you want to do it yourself - right up to what kind of foam, in what thickness and layering you need to get the cushions to be what you want.
IF you want to re-do the cushions Beneteau builds in the US, and may have shared out patterns. Check around and see if they have a company that works with them and you may find a less expensive option.
When we had our previous/previous boat redone (a hunter) we found a company that did the entire set from bow to stern for 1800 bucks, quality work and everything fit exactly because they had the pattern already.
