      What about for the Bow Seats, crescent shaped? These are really the worst. Are you aware if you can just purchase new vinyl covers and not the entire new seats as sold on greatlakesskipper?

      Thank you for the help.

        For the front cushions, you're going to have to see an upholsterer. As for seat covers, never seen them. Wouldn't be worth the trouble since you would need an upholstery gun to install them on the newer boats with the plastic baseplates.

          You'll find more than a few places that sell seats on the net. Get the best deal you can find and watch out for horrific shipping. As for side rails and removable cushions you can do it yourself in most cases. The way bayliner uses the short style nonstandard seats sucks and just makes everything an expensive hassle IMHO. Lot's of online dealers of marine upholstery out there. You likely won't be able to match them with the nice piping and such but in most cases can get a good job out of wrapping / folding them ect and likely the wife may be VERY helpful in the process. Mine came out good enough, just not as fancy . A hand fired staple gun with stainless staples works fine.

            Go to your local furniture restorer/upholsterer.

            They have the skills and material to match everything up including piping etc. not only that but they do not charge "marina" prices.

            Its not much use to you in the USA but there is a great little upholsterers in Aldershot, UK who did mine for me at a great price as they did not realise what a "specialist" boat upholsterers would have charged.

              I spent $80 on marine vinyl, and paid an upholstery shop $135 to sew it up and install it, my back to back seats look great. Not perfect, but great. I bouught another $100 in vinyl and did all of the bow cushins and backrests myself, using the fold and staple method. The whole thing looks great now, I get lots of compliments on it, and it works good for cheap. One hint: buy good spray on glue and glue the new vinyl to the old as you're wrapping it, and pull it snug, take your time and it will turn out nice.

                  I believe the 2005 seats would still be available from Bayliner. IMO the factory does the best job on the seats, even though they will be a bit pricier.

                  Visit Bayliner's customer care/parts catalog page, get the parts you need and call your nearest Bayliner dealer.

                    Yea they probably do and I am not all that partial to some of the aftermarket designs out there either. It's made a lot harder by the bonehead way Bayliner went and had to be different and blend those seat boxes into the floor. That made the selection / choices pretty tiny and has that ugly effect on the price as well. The hard part is that with mail order you don't get to actually see how well they are made ect. and it's a lot of coin and shipping to toss down on an unseen product. Even if you can send it back the shipping is gonna sting. That's why I never got mine when I redid the boat but the time is drawing close. I think I'll see if my buddy who works for a marina can swing me a deal, I'm getting desperate. So how much does anybody know off hand is Bayliner getting for standard fold down's? I'm not looking for an exact year color match with mine either as I've already deviated with my mailorder trim.
