Rib seat re-covered

Please can I have a recommendation to get my seats re-upholstered on my Coastline Rib.
Solent based.
Many thanks.

I needed a some work doing a year or so ago, Giacomelli Upholsterers (Cowes) came and looked at the job and I never heard from him again, ended up using P J B Marine Upholstery also in Cowes, he overran by a few months and had a couple of quaility / finish issues which I picked up on, admittedly he then addressed them to my satisfaction - but would I recommend him............probably not.
I know is a bit of a logistical pain but in future I’d use a mainland company, good luck!

Just had new upholstery done for my 6.5m Coastline.
I supplied new marine ply bases and the the upholsterer supplied the foam, vinyl and did everything else. Just waiting for a break in the weather to fit it now. (£380)

Unfortunately the other end of the country.

Appreciate the heads up, although I live on the Island(most of the time) I guessed the mainland would be the best option.
