I finally got around to showing the cockpit upholstery work done this past offseason. I made frame from plastic so that rotting will never be an issue. I reused the old foam after it was steamed. A local shop put the marine vinyl on for me. Used staples and adhesive. The captain's chair will be done or replaced next year. I changed the color scheme some... wanting to loose pink/purple accents.

What kind of plastic base did you use and what was the cost? I looked at Star board, but they wanted $400 for the material so I used my old wood and just painted it.

David,
I work for a PVC plastic film & sheet manufacturer so the price was right for blemished 4'x8' sheets... free. :D
If not for that, I would probably have used plywood also. I used a corrosion resistant industrial 1/4" or 3/8" sheet with 1&1/4" thick framing studs of the same material. The exposed areas is FAA certified metalic silver appearance 1/8" thick material. It is normally used for forming interior parts in aircraft like seating, trays, etc. The material works great for my marine needs. I used some in the engine compartment also.
If you were interested, I offer you some material to try out. That would be easier if you were nearby... :arr

Seapuppy,
Alot of our stuff ends up in Boeing interiors also - just not that metalic silver. Alot of the window shades that slide up & down in the planes are of our stuff. Anyway - interiors or cargo bays only...
California & Washington are our largest US markets for that type of transportation material - wonder why? :arr

Looks really nice!

Too bad it's PVC based. I'd love to talk to ya about getting some, but the optics in lasers go away fast when you cut PVC materials. The chlorides in the PVC leech hydrochloric acids when cut.

You guys got anything in .125" - .250" thicknesses that are chemically more like Corian or Starboard?

Great Look though! Like brand new!

The price is right. I wish I'd known. Grandma and Grandpa live near Akron and could have brought some with them. They are heading back to Ohio on Tuesday.

Mike,
Everything is PVC resin base (yep CHLORIDE) but not chemically similar to Corian or Starboard as far as I know. Some Acryllic or with ABS and most do not have great UV resistance for outdoor use like Starboard but other characteristics (impact, tensile, flexibility, etc) are very similar. PVC is very formable and some with high heat, flame, smoke, corrosion, chemical, or acid resistance for somewhat specialized end uses. Our customers do C&C cut it but I am not familiar with those processes.

Here's a link to our products:

The chair has too many cushions. It would be much better with a bottom and a back. I used 1/4 foam instead of 1/8 on the plastic shell. Made the fit tighter, but better. The hard part is scraping all that glue off the plastic shell. That took some time.

Ken,
Thanx. There will be more I'm sure. The radio mount similar to yours this winter.
Steve,
Not much wood left at that corner/end.

I was thinking of adding a stern seat like that to my 2556.
Do you have anymore pics of it. I'd like to see how it mounts to the transom.
Great job!!!!

I don't have more pics of that seat. I'll try take more but the stainless frame (factory) is mostly covered with vinyll so it may not tell you much. We love that seat by the way...

I wouldn't say the boat looks any better now since it's usually got a couple of teenagers and dogs messin up things - well other than with the current captain in the chair vs the previous... it looks better.
