redoing my 04 san 210 and I am wondering what will hold up the best naugahyde vs vinyl?

Naugahyde IS vinyl. Use marine grade vinyl.

I have a cushion redone in naughahide, just white. I haven't seen all the colors, my initial impression is it isn't as aesthetically pleasing but it is thick and I'm sure it'll last longer.

Naugahyde is a vinyl coated fabric so the question becomes what type of vinyl! The marine grade is UV protected and mildew/mould resistant. Now you just have to pick the weight, which has little to due with the quality, the durability (tensile strength, wear and stain resistance), the feel, texture and colour. Lighter colours are certainly easier on the skin in the hot sun. 2 way stretch vs 4 way and perhaps which way you want it to have give. Also, the foam plays a huge part in the mix, if you need to replace it. Same for the sewer. Be careful pulling off the old material, it usually makes a good pattern, remembering it will be off where it had been pulled tight for years, same for sun shrink. Use nylon thread and stainless steel staples. Have fun, if you are doing it yourself. Start with a small cushion first to see if you have the ability to DIY.

There is a big movement in Europe to save Naugas and preserve there native habitat. I think that several politicians are planning a fact finding trip to Africa and Tahiti this winter to try to save the endangered Nauga.

Yeah that's right. Remember what happened to the Corinthians?

Yes, it was the Chrysler Cordova with the Corinthian leather seats

Ever since the over hunting of the Naughas for their pelts the quality has decreased since an older Naugha has thicker hyde.
