    Question New seat cover ..what materials to pick?

    First post, hello everyone.


    I might be buying my first PWC which comes with a pretty beat up seat. I've been looking on HydroTurf site and I'm a little confused about the material options they offer.

    Does it make sense to go vinyl on all the parts or is it a good idea to use "gripper" on some. I'm not really sure what gripper is


    Thanks

    That's expense to ship some seats. Just buy a cover from them and have someone local to put it on

    x2 or just buy one the staple gun, staples, grapple with it for hours, or just take it to a local guy.

    Material - get the one that looks nice. Think most on the market all hold up well.

    Here is my Hydroturf.

    Top where I sit is what you call gripper. It's a nonslip material, not abrasive though like some.
    Then the yellow band is vinyl to match the ski
    Then silver metal flake vinyl to match the ski trim.

    I just picked a layout that followed the lines of the ski.

    Hydroturf and Jettrim both make great covers, but find a good installer locally to save money. Someone that's done ski seats before and knows to use stainless steel staples.
