A place right next door to Windsor marine at Wicor park, Porchester. Mark was the guys name and the company is Flew sails. They build for a couple of RIB manufacturers and are very resonable price wise with top notch quality. You can even design and build you own seat bases and seat backs like i did and get em to cover them.

Helm Seat base and back and rear backrests where made by them

thanks for the response..is it comfier to have a flat top to the jockey seat or to have a rounded top like your driver seat?

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

Not teaching anyone to suck eggs and all that...but... when you order your upholstery make sure that whoever you choose agrees to used closed cell foam and seals the seams. This will cost more money but is definitely worth it. There is nothing worse than upholstery soaking up water! Rib seats do tend to get a little wetter than "sports boat" (feck off FGT..before you give me a smart arse comment )seats for some reason so don't accept stuff on its look alone.. .. and if the upholsterer says "but we've always done it like this".... walk away and find another one.. you ARE the customer.

There is a guy near Golden Common near Eastleigh who works out of a barn and does a first class job at a more than reasonable price. Trying to find details and will post them if I find them...
