All good feedback on here, i am going with a slightly different style to the normal vipermax setup and have got a word document with pictures and dimensions and a list of needs etc like closed cell foam, A4 staples if possible etc etc so thanks for all the prompts and I will contact all the folks you provide details for.

Following on from Jono's advice the other thing to ask for is stainless steel staples to join the fabric to the seat, or you will be back to square one.

hi pete thanks for the info, i had mentioned a4 staples in my post below as these are the top stainless staples as there are various grades of stainless. I have it all documented in a nice word document with pics etc and the tender has now gone out to the folks i am aware of

good suggestion for me to make the bases, that could save a few pennies and just get the company to upholster....good plan sir ...now where is my saw
Pop into Flew sails, everything is Marine quality and stainless steel, closed cell, and bagged. They have different profiles, some fully rounded and some with a slight flat on top and can do different hights. They will mock up on the floor or seat for you to sit on. Basicly they'll do whatever you want.

Mine was a special because my console base was a little low. I made a special deep seat base and they fitted a little more padding, top notch.

I've done a bit of research with regards to upholstery for my rib. I thought that closed cell foam was a good idea for obvious reasons, but when I mentioned it to Toomer and Hayter at the boatshow one year, the woman looked at me blankly and said that the only type of closed cell foams are those that swimming pool floats are made from (ie hard with no 'give' so not suitable for upholstery). I thought she was talking crap, but I didn't want to say anything

I have spoken to quite a few upholsterers and non of them say they use any type of closed cell...some use chip foam, other use some other fairly dense stuff.

Any ideas?
