Hired a local vinyl guy. Do you guys think this is acceptable?

Hired a local guy and this is how it came out. I asked him to fix some things, wrinkles, many of the lines are not straight, and he used a piece that has a crease in it before he even cut and sewed it in. He told me he doesn't care about my expectations and that I owe him the full value.

What do you guys think, am I being too picky?

He wants to charge me $1700 for this and says he's keeping my seat until I pay. Just on the moral level here I don't want to pay the guy 1 cent, because you are exactly right. That thing is not making onto my boat. So, now it seems I have to take the guy to small claims court to get my seat back.

My local trusted boat dealer/mechanic highly suggested him. The vinyl guys claims he has 30 years experience.

I'm so upset about all of this, and I'm slowly missing out on the short season.

Wow. Guy needs a career change if he's proud of that work.

Looks like a 5 year old did it. Sorry you have to deal with it, I'd tell him to take his vinyl back and shove it up his azz. And 1700?!?!?!? Are you kidding me!

Good luck.

I was much more professional then that but yes I asked him to remove his vinyl and give me the seat back. He disagreed, went to the boat dealer and took the seat somewhere so I couldn't get to it.

Not good at all I would be piss also, unfortunately you may have to pay if you want your seat back before summer is over. Another board member GLH is from Burlington area maybe he could recommend someone to clean that up.
