material for backrest

I would like to do a backrest similar to that on the photo.
What material should be used for that?
How you usually do something similar?

Thanks.

Two choices, either do it yourself or send it away to be professionally upholstered. They would need existing seat back for plywood/template, etc. Do a Google search under Marine Upholstery.

If it's a standard bench seat back without ribbing then you can do it yourself. You'll need a sewing machine at the very least. It can work out expensive as you'll probably need replacement foam (available in different densities), the vinyl/acrylic canvas, piping for edges, etc. This company has online shop. http://www.cjmarine.co.uk/

You'll need a metal fabricator to make a good stainless steel backrest frame. I seem to think I know of one, but can't remember the name just at the moment.

Any thoughts Martini????

that's about the size of it, have mellowed as i've got older but i still have zero tolerance for idiots, i don't think that will ever change.
my rule is treat people fairly until they piss on my leg and tell me it's raining

Martini is probably worth a phone call first as he's a fabricator based on Jersey.
Nothing wrong with Biffer's work but might be easier for both parties if you use someone local.

simple enough, frame in 32 or 38mm OD tube with 3mm plates welded to take backrest and 5mm plates to bolt it to your moulding.
you could get complicated and have it hinged, depends how your'e boats laid out and of course our's are different from everybody else
