Big Reveal – Cushions Are Finished!


Love how bright these look in the cockpit.

We are thrilled with the cushions fabricated by Carol of Atlantic Canvas in Fajardo, PR.

After several tests, affectionately referred to as the “Cushy Tushy Test,” we settled on 4″ seat cushion and 3″ back cushion foam.

We love the happy, vibrant color of the cushions, as well as the comfort.


Carol fabricated a back so the sundeck seat is more comfy.


We had covers made for these large cushions in case we are slathered with sunscreen.


Carol recovered our pillows to match the outdoor cushions.

Having lived in Texas for over 30 years, we just had to bring a little Texas feel with us, so we brought a cow skin rug and a cactus lamp.  Guess we just didn’t want to completely let go of Texas!

What do you think of the new look for Let It Be?

Thank you, Carol, for all your hard work and attention to details!

If you want the phone number for Atlantic Canvas, just let me know. Currently they do not have a website or I would have linked to it.

  1. Hi! I would love to have the contact information for Carol- love your cushions! Did you sail to PR to have them done there? My husband and I are looking to buy a new Helia and are trying to decide if we opt for the FP factory cushions or do ex-factory like yours. Not wild about the FP cushions… from what I can tell, yours look much nicer. Could you please advise as to the cost?
    Also, it appears your indoor cushions are FP’s “PVC” faux leather material. How have you liked these?
    Thank you!


    1. Sorry for the delayed response. We have very little internet at the moment. A big congratulations on your Helia! We have the faux leather inside and it holds up very well which was great because we were in charter for 2.5 years and they still look good. They don’t feel as plush as some other cushion material might feel but they do last.
      I love my new cushions. I do have to scrub them every 4-6 months to clean them but I think they are worth the effort.
      We did go to PR for the cushions but Carol was able to look at another Helia to determine price and material needs. I think there is a link to Carol’s email in my blog, but just in case I will try to send it soon.
      I think the cushions were about $9k including material and foam, but I can’t remember exactly.
      You will enjoy working w Carol. She is very talented and a super person!
