Re-covering the seats

November 19, 2016

Penny was built in 1977. Needless to say, they had some pretty interesting ideas on what was “fashionable” back then. Alix is hosting a party in a couple weeks so we decided to stop putting off the project and put new covers on the seats. Came out pretty nice. Maybe the pattern is not “modern”, but it works for us! I think you will agree that the before and after shots are impressive.

We did not want a solid color because we thought it might be too boring. We looked at several patterns and settled on simple zig-zags. It came out pretty nice and really lightened up the boat. It does draw your eye. We will try it out for a while and if needed swap it out again. It is very easy to put new coverings on Penny’s seats. Be part is it only cost $30 to do it ourselves!

Before – funky 1977 style


After – freshly covered. Yes the long backrest will be completed shortly.
