Replacing jockey vinyl seat covers

My vinyl jockey seat covers are torn and I want to replace them myself with hypalon. Anyone know of a good place to purchase approx 1.5mx1.5 peice grey hypalon?

These people were at the boat show and seem quite knowledgeable. They also run a one day course on how to do the job - if you are not already competent.

Thanks for that.I saw them there yesterday and they seem a good company to deal with. Also at the boat show were Toomer and Hayter but the people on the stand had never heard of using hypalon to cover jockey seats. I see that Quinquari ribs (www.quinquarimarine.co.uk|) use only hypalon to cover their seats.
I just think that vinyl is just not fit for purpose for jockey seat covering. My rib is 3 years old, the boat is well cared for, kept away from UV exposure unless actually under way with 150 engine hours. The vinyl is torn at "stress" points near the hinges and around seams. Hardly heavy use...

Purchased some hypalon/ orca today from Paul at tidel.biz same thickness material he uses for tube baffles. Just got to get mother-in-law to get out her sewing machine...
Very helpful is Paul.
