Has anyone attempted to make a bow cushion from scratch?? Now do not get me wrong here, I have a friend with a good background in sewing and we plan on trading services, so i wouldnt have to do any of the stitch-work. I need to get the material and the foam.
This wouldn't be used all the time, just from time to time for relaxing on.

All you have to do is make a template out of paper or cardboard and go down to UFO in National City. They will cut it for you for almost nothing. You got to buy the foam though and it isn't cheap.
They are at:
(Upholstery Fabric Outlet National City
If you keep the boat indoors most of the time, the open cell foam covered with Sunbrella of vinyl would be fine. We have open cell cockpit cushions on our sail boat that sit out side most of the year. They are covered with vinyl and only absorb water when it rains and the water pools under them.
Good luck and congrats on your new boat.

Thanks a lot, I knew there was someplace around National city but couldn't figure out where.
It is kept indoors and the cushions will be primarily used to *semi-free* concerts at humphreys and afternoon naps at the kelpbeds, so I imagine whatever foam I can find will do.
Again, thanks for the info.

See hallsnautical.com For the $170-250 price range, depending on Whaler model, it's not worth making them yourself.
