Probably a good idea to get a new nylon strap for the winch every few years too.

The materials for my upholstery came from Sailrite. The wife was instrumental in picking the right shade of "white." It's not a perfect match for the hull paint but it is really close. I am wondering how some of you did your cushions. Did you make a box cushion and velcro it to a plywood base or did you staple the edges to the underside of the plywood base? I have enough vinyl for either option. I am tired of my butt going numb from the throwable boat cushions.

I stapled to the bottom and covered with a mesh material. Materials were from Sailrite as well.

How do you keep your seat back closed?

Also, I finally got insurance for the boat. State Farm took care of us without any issues.

Sailrite also has some blind snap in fasteners that you attach to the back of the cushion which snap into a female piece on the seat.

I was going to use some sort of door magnet, but turns out my seats fit tight enough that they are staying in place just fine.
