    Default I need a cushion repaired

    Last winter I had a mouse chew an edge of my seat and also a small piece of the rolled trim piece and never got it fixed. I'd like to get it repaired and am not sure where to start or who to contact so I figured I'd ask you folks first?

    Take it out
    Drive to the most seedy part of town
    Here you'll find an upholstery shop
    Pull out your handgun of choice, chamber a round, and replace in holster, safety off.
    Slowly approach the front door
    A guy surrounded in a cloud of cigarette smoke will act annoyed that you're there
    Take a look at what you've got, "$200" with a grunt is all you'll hear
    You leave the cushion on his bench with your name and number on a post-it note.
    Slowly back out of the door, check both ways, and bolt for your truck.
    Then you won't see or hear anything for at least a month
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    I had a bad panel on one of my cushions and took it to a local upholstery shop. They couldnt match up the vinyl bc the color in my 08 had been discontinued. I bought a yard from SC thru a dealer and had the panel replaced. I think they charged me 50.00 to sew it in...

    I'm not sure why you think that is no help. It pretty well sums up most shops that I have been to. Only the smoke from cigerettes fills then entire workshop. Just be prepared that the shop doing work on your boat (parts) may not appear to be capable of doing anything quality.

    The only place I have found to be more seedy was the fiberglass/gelcoat guy. Great work, but smoke must ward off the effects of fiberglass resin fumes or something.

    The upholsterer usually works on motorcycle seats and occasionally an old lazyboy chair. If you are a fancy pants boater you can get them to do the work if you pay cash and beg and are willing to wait. Best to go in a couple weeks before Christmas and tell 'em you'll pay in cash (probably won't be using the boat much then and nobody is spending money on their motorcycle seats at that time of year).

    Honestly i would call your Dealer, see if they can get you the matieral, if not then let me know i have some contacts to get things such as these.

    Then you can take it to an upholstery shop and get it fixed.
