Save a Bundle: Make Your Own Cockpit Cushions With Sailrite

Buying a boat is an exciting experience, but there are times when getting a great deal on a vessel means purchasing a “fixer-upper.” Whether it’s outdated curtains, cushions that have fallen apart over time, or pillows that need more than a good washing, some boats just need a good ol’ fashioned makeover. The only problem? You’ve just bought a boat—you don’t want to spend anymore money! But why buy when you can DIY?

Instead of buying expensive new boat accessories, try a do-it-yourself project from Sailrite! In this video below, the Sailrite team teaches you how to make brand-new cockpit cushions from scratch. Take a look:

Creating your own cushions, covers and pillows is a fun way to pass the time and learn new skills—and it’s also a great way to save money.
