Wanted to hear from people here. What were there................... 4 responses on the Nautique site. Thanks for the useful info
Already checked the MC site as well with one response. This is a much bigger community with way more people......... thanks again for your useless post. Really helped answer my question. Hope it made you feel better. Why even have a board here for any question with your thinking. Just use google...........

I just went through a F-ing nightmare with Copycat covers. I sent seats out to them in the winter of this year, with a promise that they would turn them around in 3-5 weeks, but I didnt receive them until June. Apparently they went through some sort of management change, and I got stuck with no seats for the beginning of the season because all their employees jumped ship. The customer service sucked horribly, and they consistently told me I would be getting pieces by the end of the week, only to call Monday and get the run around again. The only good thing I have to say about that establishment, would be that they used good quality materials. It just took 5 months to get them back. I would recommend finding a different upholstery company to handle your work.

Wow perfect timing. I may give this a try. I've only got a few small pieces to do, custom shop kinda wants a mint and my boat's too old to get direct from MasterCraft.

I hear ya Chaun............... there price(copycat) is half of what my local shop wanted, that is why my post. 2200 for all my cockpit seat bases (excluding drivers seat), sun deck, rear seat back and the 2 side panels installed. I did remove my sundeck and 2 side panles to just bring it all in to them otherwise it would have been more for labor. $920 from copycat for the skins and me to stretch and staple them.

The PlanetNautique thread on Copycat covers i started and i got a few good feedbacks from guys with 2-3 posts so that didn't hold much water for me!
I asked Copycat Covers for a quote in June with no intentions of doing anything until October and I will admit from June until the day i committed my seats to them they were persistent on trying to get a hold of me to see if i was interested and to tell me about specials they were running. The owner even called me to talk for a while about the company and how long he's been in the business. I finally sent them my seats a few weeks ago and have gotten nothing back but it's only been a few weeks. I will be calling them to see how things are going and when i get the product back I will post a review on the company!
For the record i got a quote for my three seats from Copycat Covers and and CC was $187 cheaper than NS.

WHAT THA !!@#$ Who would have known.

Thanks Chaun

Called them up and they are just getting up and running as an MC Exclusive shop branched from their original shop. This was their first summer. Seemed like decent people on the phone. Sending them some info and we will see how things transpire.

What are the odds

I've been in their shop a few times & have seen some of the covers first hand .They did go through some management changes awhile back . It's a pretty easy for them to make cheaper costing seats as right down the road is Bri-Tech & you can buy good quality vinyls for about $5.99 a yard if you get 10 yd cuts. The rest is just labor. I think I had about $100 in mine doing them myself.

I am sending my skins to CopyCat next month. So far I cant speak for the quality of the product but their customer service has been top notch. Their price is less than half what I was quoted from NautiqueSkins. The sales Rep I dealt with (Scott) was very helpful and the sample board they sent seems to be of good quality.

I just dropped my rear sundeck and rear seat back from my 97 supersport off at a local guy. He said ballpark 200 to do them both with him installing them back on. I got a quote from Nautique skins this spring for 450 and that was just the rear sundeck skin not even the rear seat back. I had him do all my seat bottoms about 5 years ago and they've been great so far. See if you guys can find any small local places to have them done. This guy just does them out of his house.

I was quoted 2700 for full-boat skins from the factory regarding a boat I'm looking at buying. Last Monday, after reading this thread, I filled out and submitted the on-line query for Copy Cat and have heard not a peep so far.

Perhaps a WTF? phone call will be made later today.

Hi I am the real new owner for the last six months.
We are working hard to see to all of your needs.
Our new production shop has only 4 people with a combined experience of give or take 90 years. Hence Copycatupholstery.
We want to speacialize.
All of the feedback I found when looking into the business said the materials were outstanding and the work was good , great, excellent but the turn around was too long.
We are only taking so many orders per week.
7 full boats and smaller fill in seat , bench, gunnel projects with the occasional auto trim. jobs about 5 to10 additional.
Turn around is at most 3 weeks or less now, barring special embroidery 2-3 days
We can be reached via our website for quotes or forget that e me
Commercial customers please continue to use
I did not buy this business to starve to death.
