    The 37 has the seats on a very short pedestal, mounted on top of a cabinet. They do move fore and aft.

    This is a stock photo of the helm seating.

    I would have liked Stidd seats but my boat was ordered with Llebrocs. The Llebroc on my BC 34 was certainly comfortable, but I like rounded edge of the Stidd. I can't justify tossing a new pair of Llebrocs and spending close to $20k for Stidds though. I tried to get the dealer to swap out the Llebrocs for a pair of Stidds on another boat, but it didn't work out.

    I'll just say that colored VINYL in summer feels like the surface of the sun. Colored fabric like Sunbrella isn't nearly as bad. I had striped tan Sunbrella seat that somewhat surprisingly didn't get uncomfortably hot.

    This guy had no problem with them.

    The diamond pattern is nice, however if it's stitched (to create the pattern) - any concerns with water seeping through? I only see quilted diamond patterns that are stitched. Depending on the seat design, if you can add a slight angle, and omit any type of raised edge - this would assist with water runoff. Just trying to think this through.

    As I was speaking to my guy about the diamond, he said its not stitched, its made into the fabric.... so no worries about stitching coming loose, or leaking..... I decided against it anyway

    You are fortunate that SR did a good job with the selections. We redid the entire seating in the salon of our brand new 1993 EC. SR went through various phases in the 80s and 90s where some atrocious "cool" patterns were used. We replaced the original black and white zebra style sofa fabric with a neutral contrast to the rest of the cabin. It looked far better than what the factory installed. The boat sat in the dealer show room for close to two years in part due to the ugly interior, and also due to the Carter luxury tax. Garwood 003.jpg

    We used Nassimi Seaquest Marine Vinyl for these jobs and the tan was "Dune", dark brown was "Pelican", on the 310 the darker color was "Hampton" with a "Pelican" welt and "Chalk White". The Pro Line was "Mist" with "Midnight" welt and "Chalk White" for the pleated section. When we did these we sent out the panels for embroidery however we are now do that in house. I like Nassimi Seaquest as it seems to be a good quality marine vinyl and our local distributor stocks them which is convenient. We use the "Chalk White" on the replacement filler cushions we make as it is very close to the original Sea Ray color.

    However, be warned there are hundreds of vinyl lines and colors available and you can easily get lost in the search going down that rabbit hole. I believe a lot of the original Sea Ray seats used a vinyl material called Nautolex. While Nautolex is still available not all of the original colors are. Case in point is the Nickel color that was popular for a while.

    As with anything color related - if you want something specific do not rely on the colors on your computer - get a swatch card and look at them in the real like outside.
