    Catalina C-22
    US Lake Rathbun, IA
    I was able to use the original 1980 era foam pads, but that brown covering had to go. Itchy. The vinyl in the cockpit didn't breathe, was stained and uncomfortable. All of the foam was in great condition. No mold, still firm. I had a local upholsterer do my work as my sewing skills are not as good as some on this forum. Used higher end Sunbrella and it will last another 20 - 30 years (probably longer than the boat). They made a tiller cover and lifeline covers as well. Looks sharp (IMHO).

Low prices, custom fit, no-wait estimates
NEW rigid hatch covers
Hatch protection like never before. Tough, secure, installs in seconds.
Sail Trim Chart and Guide
When it comes to sailing, as basic as salt and pepper and just as indispensable!
Merriman pedestal control head
Finally, an aluminum replacement for this YS Merriman part.
