Red Mist Cooker Plinth

Hi, I think there are a couple of problems with your idea. :) Those plinths are the support for the mast arch above so any incursions need considering from that point of view, that is to maintain structural integrity. Also they are part of the buoyancy scheme in the boat, I thought that any hatch in...

Seat Covers

Jeckells Upholsterers of Wroxham, Norfolk might be worth a look. If you have the originals, for taking a pattern and, maybe reusing the wooden infills, any competent upholsterer should be able to do this job, it is fairly straightforward.
