    Default Interior for the boat?

    I just traded my tunnel for a 19' Carrea. It needs a new interier. I am looking into cloth, but dont know what to put in it that wont mold. I have seen alot of boats with cloth style seats and liked the looks of them. Anybody use it?

    My dad and my uncle have the cloth interior in their boats. It looks great, Its easy to maintain, and it's confortable because it doesnt get hot or stick to you. I recommend it.

    CJ I was talking with John @ Riggs Brothers, said they used to do lots of tweed, on high end boats. He said, hardly anyone gets it anymore, but agrees it is the kats ass on custom stuff.

    I've never had cloth/tweed. How does it do with water? Does it take forever to dry and/or smell moldy?

    I plan to cover the motor, and recover the the seats and put in new carpet. The motor is open now and has logs already. It has teak swim steps ,a bbc, berkeley pump and needs all the cables and a place divderter. I have it in storage now, but this spring I will be a busy boy.LOL

    Underneath the tweed they have some kind of water proof liner so that the foam doesnt get soaked. My fathers boat has had it for 10 years and it's still in great condition without having it shampooed or whatever you're probably supposed to do with it.

    tweed looks great and holds up well I have had 2 boat redone in it and love it. the only down fall is when is starts to get baked from the weather it goes very quickly , & it is hard to get stains out of it even with having a sealant put on them. I would and will have it done again on any boat I own. I have had 6 customers boat turned over to it and they all love it, it really make a boat look bitchin .
