Upholstery material

Folks I plan to recover my jockey seat. What is the best material to use? Sea water on swing mooring conditions.

Having mine done in the new year with marine grade vinyl , make sure you cover the foam with plastic 1st.

Use dry fast foam. It's a bit dearer but it doesn't hold water

Nautolex is a good quality material a company to speak to for quality vinyls in CTP textiles which you should be able to find on line. Another material that we use on our jockey seats is touchtek which is waterproof hard wearing UV resiatant and anti slip wether it is wet or dry (a lot more anti-slip than vinyl) we only have it in black however.

If I can help at all feel free to PM or email direct
