Well, I finally got some time to finish the seat skin installation from mastercraftskins.com....
The rear bench looks factory new! the observer seat is also fantastic, as are the 2 cushions in the drivers seat. The actual driver seat has a couple ripples by the shoulders. Not sure if that is installer error, or if the sizing of the skin was slightly off, but that was as good as I could get it.

The guys at mastercraftskins were great to work with and the prices were great. A local boat shop wanted about $2000....this cost me $500. Maybe it didn't come out as good as they would have done, but I am very happy with it.

Looks great, those wrinkles will go away when they heat up in the sun and get used a bit.

SWeaver those look awesome. Especially that rear couch. I don't think it would have looked any better had a pro done it. I think those wrinkles in the driver seat will relax too. Nice install.

Thanks. Total install time was only a couple hours with a pneumatic staple. With the exception of the drivers seat wrinkles, the results were surprisingly good considering I've never done skins. Highly recommend for older boats!

Sweaver, thanks for posting the picture and providing details on the re-skinning process.

I have all of my skins off and ready to ship to Chris at mastercraftskins. This all was a result of your post. My 2001 Maristar 230 is in great shape other than the interior seat skins and rear hatch skins as they are all cracking. So this upgrade should make the boat look like brand new again.

I do have one question however, hate to be picky but I noticed that the stripes on your seat don't precisely match the corresponding stripe on the back of the seat. Is this just the picture? Or was this like that on the skin you send down for them to use as a template? I wanted to ask as I will be sending all of my skins down to Chris this week.

Also did you use a steamer and heat gun as suggested by other posts? I'm trying to sort out what new tools I need to purchase. I found a nice pneumatic Paslode 20GA stapler at my local HD yesterday. I've got a heat gun and I was wondering about the steamer.

Regards,
