What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?
Customer wanted a new look that would make the boat stand out. Something different than what one usually sees on a boat.
What is unique or complex about the project?
The boat was in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we are in Riviera Beach, FL (approximately 60 miles away) and the customer was in Houston, TX. Approvals were done via email and phone calls. The crew had to travel to Fort Lauderdale to pattern the boat. Various samples of materials were FedEx’d to the customer for approval.
What were the results of the project?
We created a two-tone look. We recovered the cushions and also made new cushions using EZ-Dri foam and Buckskin Ultra Leather Brisa Distressed Outdoor. The drink caddies and the drop in head rest were made with a single color Ultra Leather Brisa Distressed Outdoor. The customer arrived a few weeks later and was very happy.
