Seat repairs

I need to get the jockey seat on a Northcraft 5.5 recovered, as the covering of both the base and backrest has been cut.
I also need to make a new seat for an Osprey. I've already made a new seat base, just need foam and covering.

Can anyone recommend a seat trimmer/upholsterer in Central Scotland (preferably East) that could look at doing that type of job?

Thanks

Douglas

Any auto upholsterer should be able to handle it.

Not all foam is the same - what is the best type? The stuff on my boat is too soft - would like something a bit firmer.

Most seat pads are made with recycled chip foam and usually 7lb rating. If you request 9lb rating it is much firmer.

Also ask them to bag the foam in plastic before they cover the seat. This wasy it won't soak up water.

I remember seeing that someone had released a fully waterproof foam that didn't absorb water but can't find the magazine now.

EZ-Dry polyurethane foam, sounds great however due to it being open cell foam you won't get the support you need.

how much have you got? and how many beer tokens are needed to wrestle some from your mits? The seat on my Avon 4 Mtr. Searider could do with some major surgery. It's approx 27 inch x 10 inch.

Stewart at Castle Cottage upholstery in North Berwick did a good job with a couple of seat pads on a RIB for me
