There's more to marine upholstery than foam and fabric. The method of stitching, for example, can make a big difference in water resistance, performance and style.
When fabric is simply draped over the foam it's called waterfalling. This method is sleek and keeps the water out, but the edges are rounded. Some people don't like that.
Top stitching allows for crisper edges and a cleaner look. A top stitch is extremely strong, but not waterproof.
A wayward stitch is sort of like an upside down top stitch. It's not waterproof, but the seam is pointing down so it drains better. The wayward stitch is used in many marine applications.
A French stitch looks like a baseball seam. It allows the fabric to lay flat. Some like the way it looks, but it's the least water resistant stitch so you don't see it on boat decks very often.
Our specially trained technicians also repair canvas and fix damaged boat cushions. If there's a tear in one of your boat seats, Sunmark will reupholster the seat or match the fabric and replace the damaged section.
Not all cushions in a pleasure craft wear at the same rate. For example, if family or guests prefer sitting in the stern, those seats wear faster than cushions elsewhere. Since there's no sense reupholstering all the seats when only some are damaged, the challenge becomes choosing a vinyl that matches the color and texture of the original fabric.
It's not as easy as you may think. Take the color white, for example. White comes in scores of shades and tones. Some are a little more "blue" than others. Some appear slightly warmer. It's sort of like the difference between fluorescent tubes and standard incandescent bulbs; the light from both are "white", but you definitely notice the difference.
We carry hundreds of vinyls and acrylic-based marine grade fabrics. We'd be happy to suggest a color and pattern to reupholster a boat cushion, but ultimately the customer makes the choice. Whatever the choice may be, you can be sure that any boat cushion reupholstered by Sunmark will be durable and flawless.
