Upholstery Coming Apart!

Recommended Posts

Help!  Suddenly the threads are breaking all along one row of vinyl seatback upholstery.  What do I do?  It can't be re-sewn without removing something.  Is there a video or a site I can go to that will show me how to get the upholstery re-sewn?

Give a local upholstery shop a call, preferably one that specializes in marine gear.  They see this all the time.

Given the vintage of your boat, it may be that the thread has lost strength due to rot?

+1, have them use Gore Tenara Sewing Thread, it costs more, but will last a life time.   Denny.
