My Regulator 23 needed new coaming bolsters. The old bolsters were upholstered pads in the classic tufted style. Uncounted fish, saltwater, and primarily the rays of the sun, finally turned then into cracked and decrepit eyesores. Estimated cost for pro replacement --using my existing backers as patterns--ran to around $1,200 for top quality work, using the best materials by a respected pro in the marine cushion and canvas business with whom I have a personal relationship. I was prepared to pay that, when SeaDek introed self-adhesive coaming pads for DIY installation. These are made out of tough, EVA foam, instead of upholstered foam. I am initially quite pleased with the looks and performance of the pads. I will review them in detail after having lived with them for a season.
