    Hey Wog,
    When it comes to upholstery, Those two never seem to go hand-in-hand (quality and inexpensive) You get what you pay for and upholstery is no exception. However, If your willing to buy the material. I'm willing to grab a needle, thread, and a case of beer and give it a shot! Cant guarantee it'll be exactly what your looking for or that it will even last 1 trip to the cove, but it'll be cheap.

    Wog- im in the same boat as you...got the wood done and i have the foam, just need to get the material and have someone sew it up. Ive done a little research and it seems that aside from the labor, the foam is the 2nd most expensive part. I found a set of jet boat seats down at shipwreck marine off of sunrise and luckily i was able to salvage the wood and foam. I went to the upholstery shop i use for my car for a rough estimate for the labor and material and they said it would be around 350-450 a side.......not what i was hoping to hear. I think that the best bet is to get the material yourself and find someone who does it on the side or maybe even take it down to south sac. I will be doing alot of looking around in the next couple of weeks so ill let you know if i find someone who is reasonably priced.

    You can probably buy a used industrial sewing machine and do your own interior for the same (or less) money you'd pay to have it done. It ain't that hard really. I made our seat frames and covered 'em myself. Hadn't touched a sewing machine before either. Just a thought.

    The best don't work cheap because they don't have too. That said, myself and a couple buddies have used this guy. He's in the same complex as Canyon Boats and does their stuff as well. Price/quality are decent and he's fairly quick to finish projects.

    Andy and I were there yesterday, he is doing several boats right now. His work and materials are first class and I will bring my DiMarco from So Cal for him to do the interior and cover. He works out of his home which is on the road to Beale and CFW.

    Can't help with a referral in NorCal, but I feel your pain. The last couple boats I had done I felt came out well, but just not how I wanted it. I wanted that "new custom boat" look and got a "nice interior re-do" look. Little things like a slightly wavy stitch (or 2 or 3), or poor stripe alignment bugged me, so THIS time I sent the boat off to one of the premier boat interior shops for a complete interior. I'm paying almost twice what I have on other boats, but have a better feeling about getting the end results I want. We'll see.... it is supposed to be done by the 2nd week of June. Oh, that's another issue I have. I told Danny I need it by a certain date. Don't say "no problem" now and choke later. I gave him more time than he said he needed (might be a mistake), but he assured me it WILL be done on that date and knows I'll hold him to it. Everything I've heard about him says it'll be on time and awesome. I don't want much.....

    Do you know what does he charge for a cover? Been looking to get a good tow-able cover. Any pics of his work?

    Thanks,
