      Seriously, some of these things are best home made. It’s not that hard especially if you have the messed up piece as a template. Something like a doghouse , cushions and such will work perfectly. They may not look exactly OEM but who cares things like reupholster in basic shapes is quite like Jr High sewing class and scissors a staple gun like an old T50 and monel or stainless staples is all you need. Forget the piping just tuck neatly. Don’t try to duplicate the factory exactly or you will just go nuts. Keep it simple and it works out fine. Hit YouTube, plenty of DIY goodies there.

        I agree with driz. Even if you have to have a carpenter do the wood cutting for you, it’s well worth it. If you don’t have the old parts for templates, cardboard is a go to for making them. Absolutely use the right materials. If you are using plywood, marine grade fir. I like to seal wood in a 50/50 mix of catalyzed resin and acetone. As an alternative, Azack makes expanded foam board that works like plywood, hold staples and doesn’t rot. It’s used instead of plywood on decorative columns and other trim.
        Look at Perfect Fit for fabric, foam and then soft goods. They are suppliers to many boat builders, canvas shops and custom car shops as part of their business.

          My suggestion is to go with what you can do...I cut out seat bottoms on prior boat and my buggy. Treated them, cut vent and drain holes and took them to upholstery shop. They matched old material pretty close and was very reasonable.

          did all seats and doghouse on my first boat, which was a Sea Ray too. Doing all wood work made job reasonable. For me managing the foam and upholstery is an art forms I don't have.
