Ok .... remember that lounge chairs have some form of springing under the cushions be that coils, webbing or other systems. Boat cushions sit on plywood so you will never get the same comfort no matter what you do. Boat cushions are also rarely shaped to provide decent back support.

Otoh re making the cusions out of two or even three different foam densities can make for surprisingly comfortable seating while a loose lumber support can solve the back problem.

I also like wrapping the top of the cushions in Dacron wadding. (Dacron is a trade name, there are non Dacron products that do teh same thing.)
