    Is that per cushion? so it would be around $1500 for the front seat.

    Speaking out of turn but I’m guessing that’s for the entire front seat. Priced them at OSH also and the front and back out of leather seamed like +or- $1800 for a super cub

    738 is full front seat, bottom and back, not the rear seat at all

    For what it's worth if you can find a set of used Husky seat cushions they are OA. Also there's is a guy on the Husky web site that make covers out of water buffalo I think. He's in Thailand I think and advertises around $1500 if I remember right. Worth a look.

    That’s about right.

    They MAY be Oregon Aero. Early ones were not. I actually talked OA into making cushion sets for a Husky back when. Many since came from the factory with Oregon Aero cushion sets, but not all.

    Are these required if your Husky is on floats?

    I bought a set of used seat this past summer for my Husky. The seat cushions may have been firmly stuck in the butt of the guy that flip it over,lol, and left with him. Dee at Copper river told me that the cub guys were buying the cushions out of the wrecks he had. Mine is a 98' and that's about all I know about the Husky's , first one I've ever worked on.
    AKTango, hope the fed's don't read that, it sounds like a solid basis for them the put it out as a AD,LOL

    If you're just installing new skins over the existing cushions, it would be interesting to get a skin and see if we could match the material. We recover boat interiors with marine vinyl quite a bit. Doing some right now....

    Nice job Peter. When we were sitting in Cubs long hours fish spotting. Alot of us had custom front seats made up with high grade memory foam as a top pad but usually had the seat made with a zipper to install your sleeping bag as 3/4 of the filler, then you Aways had your bag with you! A 2lb down bag under 3" of memory foam makes a darn nice front seat bottom cushion.

    It doesn't happen so much anymore, but one of the best seats we used (in boats) back 10 years was what they called dual density - nothing more then a soft top foam, maybe 1 1/2" thick, and a denser bottom foam, maybe 3" thick. The soft top gave you comfort and the denser bottom gave support and prevented bottoming out. Not sure whey they went away from it other than cost. Now all the new seats are just hard foam.

    pb

    Edit : Since it's been taken out of context already, let me rephrase. The MFG of the BOAT cushions changed how they make them NEW. I offered this as a point of reference. How we upholstery them when we redo them is completely up to us, and has no relation to how the MFG did it when NEW.

    Not mine! You need to find a better upholsterer.

    Yep, local's good. Get the foam built up and try it in the plane to make adjustments before fabric goes on. That's how custom fitting gets done.

    Stewart, read the whole post. You just took this completely out of context with that retort.

    Just a comment on a comment. I've had furniture and airplane seats done by the same shop. Comfy!

    Actually it's not a comment, it's a twist of the facts. By commenting that I need to "find a better upholsterer", you are making a statement as if I am having new factory boat seats reupholstered at some shop that only uses hard foam. Do you not understand that's not what I said?

    Let me make it simple. I re-upholster interiors as the customer would like. The fact that I find single density foam when I unwrap the original seat from the OEM is a change from what they used to use. I am more than happy to install dual density foam or what ever the customer would like.
