You could also consider old canopy covers. Where the frame was broken but nothing wrong with the cover.

The old man( Capt Tom) that makes the sails for our R/C sail boats uses a "sail cloth he gets from a fabric store. Cuts it with a hot knife and uses basting tape that you heat with an iron. Even adds heavier cloth for the high stress areas. They have been holding up a few years now and look great.
All home made sails.

I installed the cleats using thickened epoxy and some temporary drywall screws.

This morning I went to Lowes and picked up a qt of paint for the settee berths. I also picked up all the wood strips needed for the rub rail (not pictured).

Your cockpit lockers are open to the inside of the cabin, right?

Just thinking a hatch between the cabin bulkhead and the lockers....

Are you using a primer? I have not used that paint, but something like it. Worked great.

Hi CaptUB! I'm not planning to prime the berths. Just going to give the surface a quick sand to rough it up a bit, then roll it on.

You mentioned a hatch between the berths/lockers and cabin: It's a good idea but I'll most likely leave them open
