My winter project

I wanted to share the final outcome of my winter project. New cockpit cushions! I only have four band-aids on my fingers. I had some false start....I finished one whole cushion and was not happy with the outcome and started over again.

Here is the final outcome. Not bad for the first time, but don't look too closely.

Cockpit cushions

Look nice Chris. Do you need measurements for my cockpit or is your memory good enough?

Thanks Chuck,
The memory is not as good as it used to be. Send those measurements and we will see. LOL

You guys better be careful.
I think I see a backlog of orders headed your way.

Send measurements and a lot of money and you got a deal!!

the cover is phifertex plus with reticulated foam on top over closed cell foam, all wrapped in batting for extra softness at the outer skin.
The snaps are in the back and snap into buttons on the cockpit coaming. holds in place well.

She did our bimini last summer as well. turned out very nice but these are even better.

She also did 2 throwable cushions to match
