    Anyone have any idea where I can buy the material myself so I can recover them myself.

    Thanks Kim

    Backed vinyl can be had at most any fabric and craft store. More application specific products can be had at canvas/awning supply shops or you may try the phone book or web for outfits that specialize in recovering. They may place an order for you or even let you in on their supplier's name.

    vinyl??

    I am very very new to the boat world and was trying to recover my own boats seats, I was wondering which type of fabric to use is just vinyl okay or should I get a special marine acrylic, or a coated kind to use to cover?? I have been finding places nearby to me but everyone has a few different types?? Any suggestions?
