If you're going to make the cushions yourself, you probably should look to get the foam from a foam distributor, rather than a marine supplier, as the cost will be much lower. You either need a good closed cell foam—for stiffer cushions, or a very open cell foam for softer cushions. Cutting the foam to shape is very easy if you freeze it and use an electric carving knife to cut it.
Freezing it makes it stiffer, and the electric carving knife cuts through it quite easily, allowing you to cut curves as well as straight lines.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
