Help with understanding construction of back seat of 1994 Ski Ray boat for upholstery?

Guest Contributor

I am wondering if anyone has this boat.  I starting out some upholstry for a guy that has a 1994 Ski Ray boat.  He had the engine cover reupholstered and is very unhappy.  I took a look at it and think I can help him.  He also gave me two sets of boards and 6 pieces of foam - three for each side and I am to make back seat cushions.  Didn't think much about it until I started to dig deep.  I have no idea how these two "L" shaped boards are to be covered.  I have asked and not getting anywhere.  The wood itself has markings on it "foam side" and "hinge".  The upholstry is white vinyl with a cording that looks like on the top and along the center where you rest your back.  Then the section in the middle.  How does that attach?  Is there a hinge?  I have no idea and he is getting really upset with me.  I can work with the engine cover, although I am just starting out and made the mistake on not asking him half down for supplies.  I see on the inside of the engine cover there is a round circle toward the top. There is no opening on the top of the vinyl so I have no idea of this is supposed to be covered or not.  I am ready to just give it all back to him and say forget it.  I have called dealers and also the factory with no help.  I have also joined vintage boating and boat upholstery groups on Facebook, also a dead end.    Is there anyone out there knowing what I am talking about?  I did upholstry on sailboats so I am not familiar that much with ski boats.  I am not having luck uploading photos.  It has not been a good computer day.  Here are stock photos of what I am dealing with.  My phone is crashed as well as my laptop.  And Photoshop crashes every time I open a photo on my desktop.  Time to go garden.stock photo of his back seat.
