Texas mastercraft uses "chappos" and has good results.
Texasriverrat uses "cals top shop" I believe with good results as well.
Dallas canvas is a little steep on pricing but good

I could recommend a good shop in Tyler as well. Wallace Upholstery.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Actually, have two different boats. My '94 205 needs, the couch redone.

Since, looking for a windshield for said boat, started getting new (to me) boat fever.

Silly season, has started.

I have never had Wallace do vinyl, but he does a lot of older car upholstery and has done a great job with carpet on curved speaker pods, a sunbrella MC cover, and a bimini top patch I have had done. All of his work has been top notch.

If you're taking things to Kilgore, and if you ever need glasswork done, Hector Gonzales does good work on fiberglass. He's in Overton of Hwy 259. Did a fantastic patch job on my father in law's 205 several years ago and did a polish tip to stern on my new to me boat several years ago. Boat still looks brand new.

Of course, for those serious glass jobs where you want to spend a lot of money and have the boat come back looking better than it was new with a shine on it like Rob Shirley's gold tooth, it begins and ends with Ted Brown in DFW.

Wallace is on Palace in Tyler. As far as I can tell, he owns the place and is doing all the work.

Good luck with that windshield.

Windshield, should be back, in about 3 weeks.

I guess, with all this searching for windshields....I'm afraid I caught new-to-me boat fever.

I had my seats split into 3 pieces. If i can make a recommendation, I suggest not doing it.

In theory it's great... But with people getting in and out, the 2 corner pieces hardly stay in place and can lead to the cushion shifting and a bad fall for the person getting on/off the boat

Keep the rear bench in 1 long piece.
