There’s only one seat on your Jet Ski—it’s important to take
care of it. Without that, your Jet Ski can be susceptible to water damage,
discomfort, and even safety concerns. That’s why we’ve put together a few Jet
Ski seat repair tips to ensure that you can enjoy a great ride at any time.
Here’s what you’ll need to know.
Taking Care of Your
Jet Ski Seat
You’ll fare better with your Jet Ski if you take care of the
seat in the first place:
- Use a
dedicated cleaner and protectant. Vinyl is a common material for boating
and Jet Ski upholstery, which is why you should keep a dedicated vinyl cleaner
and protectant handy. An easy spray-on application makes this as convenient as
possible. We recommend VinyLife
Cleaner & Protectant. This product will help you keep your seat
clean and protect it against damaging
UV rays that can lead to discoloration and fading.
- Inspect the
seat every so often. Unseen tears and problems with your seat can lead to
water getting through, which in turn creates more damage. It’s important to
have a look at your seat every once in a while to ensure that there isn’t any
unseen damage like this. The sooner you catch a hole or tear, the easier it
will be to repair. Don’t give it time to expand and go deeper with wear.
When you properly care for and identify the problems, you
help ensure that you don’t have to work hard on repairs. But accidents do
happen. Here’s what you’ll need to know when something more serious happens to
your Jet Ski seat.
Jet Ski Seat Repair
What about when you notice damage that’s already occurred to
your seat? What are the best ways to handle those repairs?
forget the inside first. If your seat has lost any foam, you might have to
replace it. Be sure to clean the area first. Cleaning it helps ensure that
you’re not going to run into any debris that could potentially injure you or
simply make the repair process more difficult. Then, replace some of the foam
on the inside to ensure that the seat is every bit as robust and comfortable as
it used to be.
purchasing a new cover. If you have something that’s simply too unsightly
to repair, it’s possible to purchase a new seat cover designed to go over the
old one. But you’ll still want to make sure that the first cover is repaired
before doing this. You can seal off the bottom layer with proper marine-grade
staples, then add a new seat cover to ensure that the overall look of your Jet
Ski is not impacted.
