Updating Your Boat’s Look with New Cushions
Written by Carlo Badalamenti
After a few years, has your boat’s look gone stale? Do you not get comments on how great it looks anymore? A quick and easy way to breathe life back into your boat’s design is to purchase some custom boat cushions in a new style.
There are two main aspects that you will want to keep in mind when purchasing your new boat foam. The first is the stylistic design of your cushions. Be sure to take accurate measurements of all the cushions you will need and look for a pattern you enjoy. There’s no point in getting new cushions if you hate how they look or they don’t fit correctly. Whites and Cool colors (blues and green, especially) are popular and usually a good choice. However, if you’re feeling adventurous, something accented in a red or orange can really make your craft pop. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s something you love.
The second thing to remember is the functionality of that design. Always ensure that everything you buy is made from outdoor foam designed for use in yacht cushions. Your cushions will be exposed to much more moisture than normal furniture, so they need to be able to repel water to help prevent mold and mildew growth. Additionally, pay attention to the firmness of foam you’re purchasing. You’ll want something on the firmer side, to provide support while in motion, while still being comfortable to sit on.
