Would guess the stitching will pull out quicker than vinyl.

I managed to find an almost identical vinyl colour - to the point that my other half thought I had new patches put on the boat to match the new seats.

Try using Lui at Quayside and Leisure: Contact. He did my seats in Silvertex for my RC585 and also quite a few other Rib netters
