    2858 Dinette Upholstery

    Been meaning to post this for a while - had this done in the spring, the old upholstery really made the cabin look shabby and it was starting to disintegrate. Originally I had talked to Kim at Canvas Plus but then the guy that did my bimini offered me a great price for doing it in the offseason. He was able to re-use the foam in the seat backs and I did removal and installation. We've been really happy with the results but the beautiful seats now make the carpet look REALLY awful, so it looks like that will be my next winter project.

    That looks great! How much did it cost? I did my carpet last fall, $1500, labor and all from my local shop. When he was done, he said the next one he'll charge more, getting the old stuff out was a bitch. My upholstery is in really good shape, just looks a bit dated.

      That looks Fantastic!

      I’m sewing my own new seat covers this winter. It’s something fun to do in the cold winter months, and it’s always fun to learn a new skill.

        Nice work. Learning how to sew so I can do my own is high on my priority list this winter. Seeing photos like yours serves to inspire me more !

          Wow - sewing your own is hardcore! I was pleased that I was able to remove and re-install them - without messing them up in the process.

          I paid $2000 - a good portion of that was for the fabric, the replacement foam is also surprisingly pricey - reusing the seatback foam saved quite a bit and I could've saved more by using a less expensive fabric - but thats what the admiral wanted.

            Looks nice, the original pattern was quite dated

              Its funny because I remember going to boat shows back in the time when this boat would have been new but I don't remember reacting to the god awful fabrics that they used. Maybe I was just dazzled by the crazy hull graphics and teal canvas. Bayliner has nothing on Silverton on bad fabric designs in their '90s boats.

                The new fabric looks fantastic, really updates the look. Our 98 2858 had the same original fabric, it was on our list to do until we upgraded to a bigger boat.

                  How difficult was it to remove the seats and seat backs?

                    It wasn't too difficult. The cushions are all screwed in from the back, you have to sort of feel around the rat hair until you find one of the screws. Once you find one the rest are pretty simple to locate. Then you can peel apart the rat hair, on mine there was a little X cut into it that you could peel away to expose the screw. I think there were 6-8 in the cave and the rest were from the back, I think there were also a couple in the hanging locker.

                      Thanks njosephson. Although our upholstery is in excellent condition we eventually want to update the look of our cabin with something more modern. Your guide will make it easier to remove the seats.

                        Hey for what its worth, Iv'e looked into doing this on our boat also, and doing some research came up with the suggestion of using a cheap memory foam mattress or mattress topper and cutting it up for the foam with an electric carving knife. That stuff feels great. Has anyone done that?

                          Extra thanks for mentioning the electric carving knife - I spent a few minutes trying to cut a 2" foam mattress topper for the v-berth before going on Amazon and ordering a $14 electric carving knife which showed up at my door the next day and made trimming so SO much easier. Well worth the expense for the time and effort it saved!

                        That really came out nice.
