Temporary upholstery fix, keeping it on the H2O?

My 96 190 vinyl is in rough shape. Bought boat in Oct 2012, and wanted to make sure the engine and transmission were in good shape before I invested in new upholstery. I need some advice on what I can do for a temporary fix to keep the boat on the water till Viper Customs can work me in? The ripped parts currently have white duck tape that appears to have been on the seats for a while. I need help! ThxName:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1370279568.318230.jpg

put the seats back in the boat?

Not really a good temp fix. Me personally I would just throw some towels over it. Could even safety pin them down. Not like you are gonna damage the vinyl lol. I can't imaging getting hot duct tape glue on my arse or legs lol.

I wouldn't waste the money on the vinyl lol. This would be a 2.99 towel kind of deal. Make sure you get something cool like sponge bob though! On a side note there is a SAN on our lake that has completely duct taped vinyl. Looks like pure crap but seriously that must be the most uncomfortable thing ever.

Towels are great.

Would be awesome to have some completely closed cell seat pads and throw towels on it for comfort.

Then have it redone when you sell the boat.

Thanks to all who have responded. Has anyone ever tried Tear-aid? Looks interesting?
