How someone can let a boat go like this, I dont kow. But it will give me alot of befor and after pics. Sorry for the fuzzy pictures, it must have been set to low quality..

The only hard part of this was trying to match up the folds done by the manufacturer. All in all it took about 1 hour.

It looked to be black mold but turned out to be what was left of the old fabric. An animal used this as his master bedroom... Just in case we soaked the foam in disenfectant and air dried it. There wasnt any odor but used new fabric smell ( car spray ) just in case my mind tried to fool me.

The 1 hour did not include drying time.

I thought that looked like black mold as well.
Glad it wasn't.
Very nice job, let's see the installed pics now.

Ahh, the '87s. The "Year of the magenta". Its one of the main reasons I stay away from those years.

Bayliner had some ghastly color combos at times.

Since this is in the cabin Im not using a marine fabric. Once all of them are done I plan on waterprofing them. The fabric is from walmart ( $2.00 a yard:) )

Hmm....is it colorsafe w/bleach?

My interior was about same condition yours looks like, scouted around and found the $30-$40/yd stuff, and then finally found a Sunbrella-like 600 denier nylon that can be used for the likes of cockpit covers and still feels like fabric instead of canvas, planning on ordering 35 yads of the stuff at $9. I color tested it with sodium hydroxide (commercial mildew-killer) and bleach.

I used the hydroxide to spray down the whole moldy boat when I got it, it was fine on the monkey fur but it turned the original blue-with-white-accents velour like Bayliner material from blue to a disgusting flesh-pink.

$2/yard sounds awesome if it's bleach-safe!
