Upholstery 1964 Corsair XL175 Sunlounger

Post by Bill Basler » Sun Jan 17, 2010 3:42 pm

As a follow up to one of my other posts in Hull Construction, I have also been working on getting the interior goods refurbished for my 1964 XL175 Sunlounger, aka: The Blue Bomb.

The seats were a total redo, starting with making new seat bases and backs out of marine plywood. The originals were rotting away, but good enough to use for patterns. The new issue seats are a dead ringer for the originals, except I fabricated new stainless steel hinges, and used all stainless hardware including the tee nuts.

One of my local upholsterers did the rest of the job. Results are good. And yes, these are pictured in the front entry of our house. My wife loves it when I do this.

My wife (and neighbors) especially like it when I park the latest pile of fire wood in front of the house.

Until I saw this I thought I was the only one who towed boats home on suspect trailers! Don, I hope you didn't have to tow it very far or over 20 mph.

I went on all the back roads and never got over 35mph.
