Nautolex
Maritime Range Colours
These are solid colours with a very slight grain. Has the traditional knitted backing like Ambla which stops it stretching 'up' the roll. It still stretches across the width which can catch you out when first using it. Seems very very slightly thinner than Ambla but has a 60000 cycles abrasion resistance rating, so should be fine for seating etc. 24 colours on my pattern

Nautolex Seatech Lite
These are slightly thinner (1.1mm) than Maritime (1.7mm) but have a nice uniform grained finish. A bit harder to the touch but a 100000 abrasion rating. 16 colours that are more muted.

I can send you a bit for postage plus a donation to the Macmillan fund.

Gary thankyou for offer.

Before I spotted these replies I managed to find someone else. Custom Covers NI who are going to shape the foam to my exact spec, cover in white and recover using marine exterior fabric and marine grade stainless staples...for 60-70 which seems reasonable again so I'm going to go with them. Seem to specialise in boats.

I thought the marine stuff would be fade resistant?

No problem glad you are sorted. Good price I think. Anything like bright orange will fade.

I'll stick with the original white then.

Thanks again for all the help.
