  • Upholstery (how I did mine-w/pics)

    In another thread I was asked for a step by step on how I did the upholstery in my boat. Here are some of the pictures of my interior and then I will follow with the covering of one of the curved bow side panels.

      The front piece of foam was spray glued to the panel and then a piece of vinyl stapled in place with SS staples. I first stapled at the rear of the foam where the stripe goes, and then pulled it tight around the front and stapled it on the back side.


      Then just pulled tight around the other edges and stapled on the back side of the panel.

            This helps a HUGE amount! Thank you so much! Did you do anything different for the bow seats (besides thicker foam)? Good thinking on the plywood platforms for the gunwales.

              Wow that looks freaking rad!!!! My buddy and I have been coming up with different ideas for the sides of the boat and where to put speakers.

                Glad to help. This forum has been a great help for me and I'm just glad I can maybe give a little back.

                As for the bow seat cushions, I didn't really do anything different except that I put some plastic on before the vinyl. That is how the factory cushions were. I guess it is to help keep the water out of the foam. The only other thing was to stitch the corners. I think you could fold the corners like you gift wrap a present and they would be fine that way too. When I stitched them though I went back and used vinyl glue on the back side of the stitched area to strengthen and to help waterproof.

                I can't take credit for the plywood platforms for the speakers and engine controls. That is how those panels were from the factory. I just copied them. I just pointed them out because I wouldn't have thought about that.

                  Judging by the shop and the "little" project in the background, seems I am not the only one who tends to start too many irons in the fire. Are we ever really done? (think not)
                  Great work BTW, skins look great!

                      Awesome job and a great tutorial. Did you flip when you seen the price of foam? I made my rear bench the other day, had to grab my heart when I was at Joanns when I seen the tag on that stuff.

                        Ha Ha. You guys are right on. I have lots of projects. Between boats, cars, snowmobiles, motorcycles, airplanes, atv's, and the house I have no lack of project potential. The one you spotted in the background is a 1970 Ford Mustang Fastback that I'm trying to bring back from the dead. About 50 percent of the metal in the car has been replaced. It just came down off of a rotisserie (I built that too) just before I started the boat. When we first got married my wife thought I would do a project like the boat because we couldn't afford to buy a decent one. Now that I'm established in a career that makes good money and could afford to buy new if I wanted she realizes I simply have a sickness where I have to work on stuff.

                            I love the signature line one of our members has that says "he ain't happy unless he has some piece of sh!t in the driveway to work on" That one makes me smile every time.
