  • Upholsters UGH

    HEY GUYS, 1997 202 BR, need your help. My Upholster got my sundeck confused with someone else's, made it wrong and threw my original away. I made a HUGE mistake not getting better photos before dropping it off and now I’m in need. If anyone has photos of your sundeck/engine cover you’d be willing to share I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Wow. I would be more than frustrated. Seems if you brought the boat in to him that he could make it.

        THANK YOU! Michael, your sundeck is identical to my 97.. Thank you. I am rebuilding the wood structure and wound up taking the old one with the old foam so he could match it. I took everything apart so it would be easier for him and I could rebuild the deck while he was working.. sheesh, what a headache. When I bought the boat back in Jan. the guy told me that it was just the hinges that were bad, the rest was solid. I knew better. It was the original. I am shocked at how little material the hinges attach to the deck. I had to make a template from the good half and transfer. here is a before and after. I'm also rebuilding the port and starboard dash. That thin plastic is sooo brittle...

        Thank you again!

          you would think you would wait to throw away the old vinyl until your customer was satisfied! Anyway, lesson learned. I need to take more photos and give written instructions when I have someone else work on my things...

            You can always make it of starboard and it won't rot again. Also if you don't put the stripes back on it you won't have hot spots on it. Just make it all white. It's much cooler. If you add dark colors it will be hot in that area.

              Sounds like starboard and custom time to me.

                Looks like you did a great job on the new wood! That wasn't part of what got thrown away, was it???

                  I only took them the vinyl, that's what was thrown away. I didn't have much to go on for the remaking the sundeck but it's done. will install new stainless T-nuts and seal it. hopefully it will hold up for another 15 years..
                  On another note, if anyone needs a template for this let me know, will be glad to share.
