My leaning post cushion rotted out and came off the leaning post. I noticed on the back it said that it was manufactored by garelic. Is this correct did they make it for whaler? I believe it was original.
I'm planing on just getting a cushion made with no plywood so it can be removed easily with snaps. Any thoughts?

George, having the same problem on my leaning post (18 Outrage). Was planning on taking it off and reconsrtucting with marine plywood and sealed with epoxy.
Then taking that and fron cooler and backrest cushions to a upholstorer.
Don't think the snaps will work on my post, but if you figure it out let me know, its a graet idea.

Erick, I had a new cooler seat cushion and backrest for my rocket launcher made a few months ago. The backrest slides into the rod holders, I don't know how I lived without it. I'm going to cleanup the fiberglass part of the leaning post and then order a cushion with a bead-piping to slide into an alum track and with a couple snaps at the bottom that should do the trick.

Do you have any pics of the backrest? Sounds like a great idea!

I don't have any pics but I can take some. I'm in the middle of cleaning the boat and making a few repairs I will send you a pic when I get a chance.

I replaced the plywood last year. I have it attaced by velcro, and remove it to minimize exposure to moisture. No slippage, and so far no sign of wood rot.
