    I have a 1994 185 Sport and my sun pad cover is damaged. I've patched a few holes and now it really looks bad. Does anyone know where I can get replacement upholstery with the Sea Ray logo on it?

    I'd check with some of the upholstery shops around you. Most of them can make a replacement sun pad without difficulty. Getting the SR emblem sewn in might be the problem, but I'd keep calling until I found one who would/could do that for you.

    When I redid the cockpit in our 260DA, I had a local company doing the upholstery. Before they refit everything, I took some of the pieces to a local embroidery shop to have the "Sea Ray" stitched in. They didn't have the Sea Ray font in their database, so it was just a matter of paying a small set-up fee.

    Thanks gentleman. What I'm looking for is upholstery with the Sea Ray swirl (so to say) Logo impression, in the fabric. IMG_0023 (1).jpg

    Oh, you mean the heat-press embossed thingy. That's going to be much harder. I think it's going to be a VERY long shot to try and find some of that still around. It would basically have to come off a junked boat where the vinyl was still good. Obviously SOME company did that - but you need to have a "stamp" to do that. This is just my opinion, but I'd start thinking of a different way to re-do that sunpad. Re-sale value will not be affected one way or the other if it is or isn't there.

    '94 or '04? I think you mean '04?

    I agree, I have a 04 and it looks just like mine.
