We are redoing one of our boats (not the MC) and I am trying to find the best vinyl I can. Do any of you have recommendations? Price is not really an issue, I want the best vinyl you can get.

The boat stays outside in the water 365 days a year. Rarely gets covered.

Thanks.

I vote for G&T vinyl (GT Global Products Solutions (http://www.gtglobalproductsolutions.com/marine/products.php5)) They've been pretty much the standard for quality vinyl products for decades, especially in the marine industry.

Check you the new Mastercraft decal kits. Pretty cool. Nice way to redo your logos

...tsk, tsk, tsk. Getting a Sunbrella cover will do more to keep your interior nice than the best vinyl. That said, I had really good luck with Windsurfer Plus, by J. Ennis. I redid my upholstery on my old boat in '94 and it still looked pretty good when I sold it in '06. Of course, I always kept it covered and it wasn't in the water all year.

I hear there's newer carbon fiber fabrics now, but I haven't had any experience with them.

This is my dad's boat. The only reason the oil in his car gets changed is because it has a service timer on it. We either redo his boat every few years or get him a new one. He is never going to change.

I could be wrong, but unless he's able to snag a roll on ebay somehow, I don't think you can get G&T vinyl retail unless you are ordering it through the manufacturer. I talked to a lot of vinyl places local and distant and none of them could get it.

It would be great if things have changed since then though.

What, Canary Yellow and Hot Pink would not be your first choice?

I knew I had seen that recently. Hence my caveat above. :) I guess some of those early 90s MC's could be a nice fit for the pink.

he has one...nice custom one. It's folded up under one of the sofas up front along with all the individual seat covers that came with the boat. He's just not going to use them.
