help finding marine upholsterers

Can any one recommend a good marine upholsterer, we are having real trouble finding a firm that deliver when they say they can deliver and deliver to a standard we expect?

Biffer's stuff looks decent, might worth a word?
Did someone else mentioned "Sanders"?

Sanders did a good quick job on my cover and they do advertise as doing upholstery but I've experience of this from them...... Worth a call though?

Don't Flew sails have a good reputation for this? I needed a seat back done quick and they were most helpful.

I've had Esteem upholstery (http://www.esteemupholstery.co.uk/) do some work for me in the past and was very pleased with both the service and price.

Might be worth giving them a call

Esteem re upholstered my Whaler a few years ago. They did a great job but hadn't heard of closed cell high density foam at the time!? I'm sure it's different now.

Also another vote for Pete Sanders. Has made covers of all shapes and sizes for me over the years, not to mention a few sails! Always listens, top quality workmanship/materials.
Can't vouch for upholstery but if it's as good as everything else, you're onto a winner.
Give Kenna a ring and go from there.

Thanks guys, once again Ribnet comes up trumps. From this thread and a PM we have a good couple of leads. With any luck we will have more success with our new suppliers.
