I just saw a pad cover made out of sun-brella material. Very light weight and covered the complete pad

It was made for one of our members by DON RACINE in JACKSONVILLE, FL.

I guess this is a good a time as any.

Throttle Therapy here on OSO, aka Tom & Kim asked me to post this up:

Kim is the one who makes the heavy duty custom terry cloth covers from transom to back seat for all of us here local (that Docmanrich37 spoke of). You will have to contact Kim directly at:
adamstk(a)Netzero.com for full details.

kindda fuggly but I guess who cares it's protection kind of like a hairnet I bet it does wonders to protect the seats and the pads, I never thought about covering the seat like that but I think it is a good idea. I remember how we had just got new seats on our last boat and Ian's parents came for a ride, no matter how nice we asked his Dad just tromped on the boat in these big azz black shoes

Those pics were taken in poor lighting indoors. The nice thing being white is you can bleach it as much as you want; and you have no worries about bleeding colors. Its really heavy and warm, and works as a great blanket at night as well. We all like ours very much.

If you commission Kim to make one, i am sure she can make it out of any material.

Brian I am sorry I didn't mean to imply that they are not nice or practical. To get full coverage over the back bench and engine pads with a one piece cover it would be impossible to make it look good. I am sure they are comfy and pratical and that's the point right? I bet she could make a fitted cover for the engine pads alone that would look great, I think I will ask her.

I was thinking this cover is sort of like birkenstocks, very comfortable, good for your feet, servicable, practable, but lets face it they are not stilletos. But we love them anyway

Costco has 82" x 82" Super towels (as they call them), they are not a solid color but cover the sunpad of my Cig no problem. And they are only $18.99...

My wife just bought one of those towels for Mentalpause as a boat-warming gift for the new F4. They are sweet!! Wally, I'll have MP bring it Saturday so you can see it.
