Do any of you fine folks know anyone in the Tyler area that reupholsters boat seats. I have a 2012 skeeter that needs new covers on my seats. Thank you all. I appreciate your time.

I have had the guys at my work reupholster my Skeeter seats 4 years ago. They need it again, it I think it’s well worth the money to get Llebrac TZX seats. (Basically skeeter specific seats). They make many styles, but the TZX is an ideal match to the newer style seats. [Linked Image]

You can pick all the colors and threads at the time you order them for no additional costs.

I have done a DIY project about reupholstering seatreupholstering seat for my boat. I reupholstered a boat seat as a do-it-yourself project. It is a successful project that you should try. The guide includes some simple steps. First, if the boat seat cover is slightly damaged, you may purchase a repair kit containing restorative supplies. Most boaters would consider just changing the vinyl seat cover. However, don’t trust them since you can’t be certain. You must inspect your helm seat and any boat seats wet with damaged foam or rotted wood.

I will look into that. Seats and foam are in great shape, just the seat covers on my driver and passenger seat are cracked and discolored. Thank you sir

Watching!
I have the same issue on a 2014 FX.
Really don’t want to spend $1200 on replacement.

Have you looked into buying skins from Skeeter? In the 30 years that I owned a Ranger I did that twice.

Call Nina Gillard in Quinlan. She has her own private shop and does boat upholstery. I have used her, she does great work and is reasonably priced.
