Recently purchased a 1974 2-29 - question about cabin upholstery

The boat hadn't been used for a couple of years, and we pulled all the cabin cushions out except for a few backrests since the canvas bottoms had become moldy. We've been airing them out at our house, and have decided not to replace them but rather just to put some easily removable rubber-backed mats and patio cushions in the boat.

I'm inclined to just throw the old cushions away, but am thinking I need to keep them to use as patterns if I ever decide to have them remade in the future to bring the boat back to its original configuration. Any suggestions? Does anyone have patterns for them? They take up a lot of space, so I'd rather not have to store them indefinitely.

Do not throw them out till some one makes a pattern for them.. It is a huge pain in the butt with out them, trust me i know. I have a cal 29 " 1970" and several were missing. It has taken a while to get them replaced and its not been cheep. They were built from boat to boat " for that boat" and we have tried to swap between boats but they do not fit well.

We've washed all the covers and sealed them in an airtight bag for storage. Those are no problem to keep around, but now I'm trying to decide what to do with the foam. To make a pattern, do they need the covers and the foam, or just the covers?

Storing the foam would be much more difficult since it takes up so much room.

I would toss the foam if its not usable but be careful even my old boat they were able to reuse some of it and they work great " 40 year old foam?" man, that stuff lives forever.
