Sailing in the Buff

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

Posted by John Hanrahan on November 23, 2015 at 7:08pm 0 Comments

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.

Many thanks, John
