So the local guy who does this sort of stuff (biminis, cushions, sail repair) told me his closed cell foam manufacturer Burt down and went out of biz. Can't find good material anywhere he claims. Who do I talk to. How big of a project/investment to do it myself? Any advice?
You might want to look at Bottomsiders, too. C-cushions look like they might be a little less expensive. Bottomsiders lists a 4-cushion set (without boat name or pinstripe) for the 35 MKII for $1,228; C-Cushion lists a 4-cushion set for $1,000. Don't know if I am looking at the exact boat, but you can check.
I have Bottomsiders in my 30+ and am pretty happy with them. They are starting to show some wear but they fit well and are faily comfortable. A good option to add would be the snaps that hold the cushions in place, otherwise they tend to slide off the seats when heeled.
Thanks rosco. I'll look into that. But I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the bottomsiders price and how many different models they have. Sven, aren't you glad I started this thread! Haha. I keep starting new threads because it's hard to search the site on my phone. I hope bringing up some good old post isn't too annoying. Anyway thanks to everyone. My boat is really starting to show some real progress
The Bottomsiders cushions were on the boat when I bought it. They do not have "hold-down" snaps but I think I saw on the Bottomsiders website that they are an option.
If and when I have to replace them I would consider the snaps. It's kind of annoying when you are hit with a gust and the cushion on the windward side, along with anything on it, slides off onto the cockpit floor.
