Malahini seat

Coughed up $1500 on the upholstery, here's the results.
It's about what I wanted. The chevron stripe on the backseat isn't exactly what I had in mind but at this juncture it's probably best to get used to loving it.

Don't know what you had in mind but it looks good to me.

Looks great Matt. Really does. Nothing to worry about there. Hopefully when you take the boat out to use, there'll be enough time left in the day to actually go boating. Going to draw a lot of attention. :D :D

Thanks fellows,
I think my reluctance to be totally satisfied with the upholstery is because I didn't achieve the results myself. It feels like cheating a little bit to pay someone else do the work.

The way we build is a different process, think about it, test ideas, think some more about it, making a few mistakes, google it for hours, etc..
I'm much more comfortable with "less than perfect" when it's my work.

Splashing her next week, no crowd, just me.
