I got my boat back!! I had him make the top too while he was at it!

I had Canvas Unique in Old Hickory, TN do the work. Check out the pics! Im happy! I cant wait to get the boat painted!

The blue is almost a denim looking cloth, but its marine vinyl, looks very 1950-60s. Its almost a perfect match to what was originally in the boat.
And for those that dont know, this is what it looked like the day I dragged it home last year!

The new upholstery looks great TN. The entire boat looks much better, coming along nicely. I see you got a new trailer too, huh! Nice ;)

Looks great. My favorite two colors together.
I am working over a Crestliner for a coworker. I hope I can get it looking like this.

The seats look great! I just started getting quotes to get mine done. I like that you stayed with the original pattern/design. Looks sharp!

Cool! my TM "upholstery" is just bench seats with probably non-marine plywood on them with a few clamp on type swivel chairs :)

Looks nice.
I'm jealous!

Thanks yall! Im slowly working on the Tee Nee trailer, I finished the cowl for my '59 Rude. I gotta get the trailer painted and out of the garage so I can paint the boat. Been a little busy at work though.

@TNLark35, do you have any pics of your finished cowl? I painted the cowl on my '59 Lark last year and just finished sanding the rest of the motor last weekend.


If the weather permits, I hope to primer and paint it this weekend. I hope to have the topside painted in the next couple of weeks.

BTW, you said you have a '59 Rude, but the pic in your avatar looks like a '58. Do you have one of each?

@Cantfish, I had the same setup on my '72 MonArk that I just sold last week. It worked well for me for many years and was a lot less expensive than the upholstery quotes I've gotten for my Maid :laugh:
