Are you talking cockpit or interior cushions. BTW, I would recommend making the interior cushions yourself, as they're a lot less expensive that way.

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.

If you don't want to tackle the job yourself ask around the dock. Sometimes you can get great work from someone who's doing it on the side out of their basement for a fraction of what you'd spend at a shop (we did).

Just make sure you see some of their work ahead of time. Everyone has different ideas of quality.

I doubt you will find a Pearson-specific supplier. There might be cushion makers who have the pattern for your boat because of work they've done before, but most likely, you will need to measure and have someone who does good boat cushions make them for you. It might help them to have the old cushions, or at least the covers, to work from.

If you can wait for new cushions, you might want to go to a local boat show. I found that vendors will give you a (supposed) discount if you order at the show. In my case, all the cushions had been thrown out and I had nothing for a pattern; new measurements had to be taken. Because of all the seating and hull angles, I decided a professional would be better to do the job. I have a 1984 Pearson 303.
