upholstery quote

I've just been given a quote by my local sail maker for my RIB seats.

The quote is for:

1 x single jockey seat (6 inch deep)
1 x 120cm wide bench seat (4 inch deep)
1 x jockey seat back rest

The quote was for 180 with grey vinyl and blue piping or 160 with blue vinyl and grey piping (as he has this in stock). He said for 200 he would add in a 120cm wide back rest for the bench seat.

I am supplying all the seat bases.

Do people think this is a reasonable price? Or should I shop around a bit? I thought the price was ok?

Cheers

Tim

Yes and I am sure they will be very nice, now get yourself a sail makers needle and whipping twine and make them yourself. You probably won't be able to do the piping but so what ? the foam for the jockey seat is availabe in lots of different shapes including half round and half octagonal. It will be much cheaper.

Well, it certainly doesn't sound expensive. Who was that quote from?

See my/zippy (howard's) posts on covering.

For 4 seats and 4 back rests i am looking at 180 for re-covering and tidying up...

I got the ones done on my last Redbay, 2 x 2 person and 2 x 1 person including all back pads. All done in plain black and I think it was around 180 so yep it sounds reasonable.

Thanks for the replies.

Pete7.35 recurring - I know you like to sew and knit tank tops for the WI, but my textile skills do not go quite that far Seriously, I was going to try and do something myself but given the fact that I know it would look sh*t if I did and I want to get it finished before i'm 30, I reckon 200 is well spent!

Rodan - did you get yours done at shirlaws in cowes?

The quote was from salterns sails at the boat yard in yarmouth. The vinyl he uses is the more expensive option as well apparently.

I'll post pics of it on my build thread when its done.

Cheers

Tim

i would say quite expensive compared to what i paid for all of my stuff


i had 4 jockey seat bases, 4 jockey seat back rests

one rear bench seat base, one rear bench seat roll back

one front bench seat base and one front bench seat back

all done with piping and fluted material that is quite expensive to use

all bases were included as were studs in position etc

all were made to custom sizes and designs

bases are multi base design with different heights to give a slightly bucket effect

i dropped you a pm in reponse to your pm with my home number so feel free to call if you need info

some folks on the south coast are very expensive, some wanted 2.5 times what i paid!!
