    Question covering a seat

    I have another SLTX seat here I just ordered a Hydroturf cover for. The seat as it is now is uncovered. What do you guys use to put under the stitched seat cover to keep from waterlogging the foam? I think I remember Beerdart using a rain fly from a tent. I don't have one of those sitting around. What is my best choice?

    I read on upholstery how-to's to use silk film (really thin plastic)- on my msx seat I used 2 mil plastic sheet from home depot and a spray adhesive to hold it - worked well

    I was just at lowes and they had 2 spray-on water sealing/proofing products. One was the stuff they advertise where the put a skin door in the floor of the boat and srayed it with the sealer. the other product was similar but cheaper. you might spray your foam with that stuff befor installing the cover.
