FISH HOUSE CUSHIONS

4 posts in this topic

I AM IN THE PROCESS OF COMPLETING A FISH HOUSE THAT I CONSTRUCTED THIS YEAR. I HAVE A WRAP-AROUND BOOTH IN IT THAT I NEED SOME CUSTOM CUSHIONS MADE. I WANT SOME DECSENT CUSHIONS MADE, BUT DON'T WANT TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS/INFO ON WHERE I COULD HAVE THEM MADE?
ANY INPUT WOULD BE HELPFUL.

THANKS

From what I have found, there is no real cheap way to do this. One thing I thought of was if you've got an old sleeper couch you could use the mattress and/or cushions. Cut to size and staple fabric around it to your benches. Otherwise foam cushions run around $30-40 per 2x6 foot piece. That doesn't even include the fabric. My search for a couch came up empty so I ended up using a triple layer of carpet padding with fabric stapled to the benches. Not nearly as cushy as I would have liked but I've been on much worse fish house benches. Carpet padding is very durable and is much cheaper than most other types of pads I've looked at. I was able to pad a full 4 x 6.5 foot sleeper bench for $17 from sections I found in the remnant area of Menards.

there is a foam place (? exact name) in Bloomington on Lyndale and 87th or so. Might be worth checking out.

    • What specific things make him indecent or classless?    Did he grab women by the pu**y? Did he make fun of a disabled reporter? Did he call most Mexicans rapists? Did he make fun of John McCain because he was captured in Vietnam? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was born in Kenya? Did he repeatedly claim that the POTUS was a Muslim? Did he say Megyn Kelly had "blood coming out of her wherever"? Did he say "Laziness is a trait in the blacks"?   I'd be interested to know what things Obama has done that are more indecent and classless than this.
    • Imagine an Obama who loved this country and had 8 years to show that.  The guy is smart, charismatic, and very likeable.  Instead we had 8 years of anti american ideology, lies, and race baiting. He chose that path, not me.
    • What reasons did you vote for Trump? Did it ever occur to you that those reasons may have been just things to get you to vote for him?
    • I know. I guess I forgot to put the  after my post.     Court decisions is what I was referring to because I also do not know of any laws officially separating church and state. There may be laws at the state or local level I don't know. The 1st amendment is not always interpreted by courts the same way. 
    • He has chosen to skip over decency and you earn respect, he is the one who had 8 years to show respect and class and failed.  He could have been the greatest president ever and unite this country but chose otherwise.  Even in his last days he is despicable.  That said i wont bow down to Trump and he needs to earn the respect obama has not.  Time will tell.
    • Anyone who thinks this country isn't heading to single payer, government funded healthcare is fooling themselves. I'm not in favor of it but we may as well just do it and get it over with now.
    • But will you recognize it? Just like I am sure that President Obama has signed legislation and done other things that YOU think are "good things"  for America that Sledneck doesn't recognize.
    • I give up.  Because it gets people to vote for them?    
    • Why would they worry about the debt, we can just print money????
    • It is a special accommodation for a particular religion.     No law states that that I am aware of.  Perhaps you have more information.  Just some court decisions which while they may be binding are not laws.
