Upholstery Care Tips from Spradling Marine
For those OCD types like Myself and Captain Tommy Derringer who at times use all day Detailing Sessions along with the correct music playing, to help us decompress (more like hide) from "Them" whomever "Them" maybe for you? Since it seems that cleaning anything, is like raising the shields on the Enterprise and you will not see "Them" all day long! 😊
Spradling International Marine who makes the seat cover material for several of the OEM Skiff and Boat builders like Maverick Boat Group that is designed to help take the beatings that Sun and Saltwater can dish out.
Has posted a nice guide on what and better yet, what not what to use, for those awesome vinyl-coated covered seats to help them look good and looking showroom fresh for years to come...
Here is that guide to help you at a quick glance, clean and help maintain those awesome looking seat cushions!
And if you would like to download your own copy to have / print out for personal reference you can from this link:
They also have a nice resource section on their Site with a list of approved cleaners and other good information located Here
Hope this helps, and Flats Nation has reached out to Spradling Marine to see if we can secure more information on their product line up. This for those in the process of changing out or updating the interiors on their Project craft (like when is any Skiff not a ongoing project from day one?) to help you choose what would look and wear the best!
Some of the newer materials and designs seen online, could really help you make your ride both pop and look very unique color palette and pattern wise at the same time!
I would like to experiment with the use of some of the woven vinyl flooring as an option to other decking materials as long as. It could withstand the inshore environment without becoming a maintenance issue in the long run?
Definitely sounds like another great Podcast in the works already 😊
