Re: Salon cushion redo

Costs for upholstery are wildly varied.. the last time we redid ours (7 years back or so) we had estimates ranging from $2500 TO $6000 new foam/fabric for the entire boat (V, settees, settee backs aft double and nav stn). We used the lower cost vendor, did have to drive an hour or so each way and are very pleased with the results. The person we used was a private individual that worked out of her garage. We had used her before on a previous boat so we knew what we were getting.

We did the V berth in Sunbrella because occasionally we dropped wet sails or an inflatable down there.. it's primarily our guest quarters otherwise... the rest of the boat is in microfleece..
