Hello everyone,

I just purchased an '05 Starcraft 180 classic and most of the seat cushions could use some love. The seat bases are molded plastic and are in great shape, is there anywhere to purchase just seat cushions for specific boats. The real problem is the burgandy stripe through the seats, the rest of the seat is decent but the red stripe is cracking and needs attention. I checked with a local sail/canvas shop and full replacement including the snap on boat cover was near $4k.

Also, where can I order a new snap on boat cover for my specific make/model of pontoon boat.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
A bad day boating is better than any day working!

If you  want brand/year specific parts for your pontoon boat, the only option is to go through a dealer and see if you can still order them.  I'm guessing you will quickly find out the dealer would rather sell you a new boat then mess with parts, and the cost will be astronomical.  Because there are so many different styles of seats/bases purchasing aftermarket "replacement" cushions only is almost impossible.  Ebay is always and option, perhaps you could get lucky and find a seller with a NOS cover laying around.  It still may not line up with your existing snaps.  For the cover it's best to find some one who specializes in them, many of the canvas shops CAN do them, but don't want to because of the size.  If you find a shop set up for them the cost will be more reasonable.  As for seating, you might find replacing what you have is more cost effective then recovering, especially if your seat cushions still have wood cores.

Feel free to contact me for help on your project!
