Hello all, here another job that has to be done. Unbelievable how many things got broken in the first month after buying our dreamboat. The previous owner didn’t boat the last two years and we found out in almost everything that he didn’t lie. One of those bummers where the cushions. When we survey the boat all cushions seemed oké. Oké the ship is almost 26 years old but it looks oké for now. Unfortunately after a couple weeks cracks came out and some holes from screws that came true because the foam inside the cushions getting soft. I really hate is when you see the vinyl having holes and cracks. It looks so poor on your beautiful ship. Luckily we have a good relations with the boat shop that also do upholstery. We bought some foam plates and a great new vinyl and may use there workspace to make the new cushions. We bought a complete rol vinyl that will cover all vinyl elements in the cockpit. For now we do only the sitting cushions. Next winter we will do the back cushions. And now and then in coming summer when I have time we do side panels etc. First I removed all the staples. A lot of staples pffff. I saw that they stretched the vinyl in the past by cutting it and restapled, poor me, had to remove double as much staples. The old foam was so soft and black from moisture and mold, I had to renew all foam. The underground is from hard plastic, after cleaning the glue they were in pretty good shape. original they use piping. But we experienced by al are previous boats the piping really hearts when you like to lie down on the cushions. And we like to lie instead of sitting. Therefore we choose for a flat cushion. It’s maybe a bit boring cushion but we prefer comfort. We also selected a white color, again maybe a bit boring but misses plays a lot with decoration cushions in different colors. As with background white we have every season a different couch. Misses did the sewing part and I did de foam, cutting vinyl and staples. I keep the new cushions at home until the new canvas is ready and no rain is coming in.(yes the canvas had to be renewed too. When it’s ready I will post the proces). And after the canvas is made and new cushions are placed I post the result. the back cushions are looking good except from the mold and mildew spots. I read some good things about marine 31 but here in the Netherlands I can’t buy it anywhere so I bought startbright mrs. next week gonna try that. Any advise, tricks for removing heavy mold and mildew spots are welcome.
