                          Item was reasonably priced (on sale) and I liked the colors. Not top-of-the-line, but I didn't pay top-dollar so I wouldn't expect it to be. Very good value for the money.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          At least one of the gentleman in your Plymouth store needs a refresher on customer service. Seems as if the customer is bothering him when you ask for assistance. Me and my dad were literally the only 2 customers in the store and he was chatting up the cashier. I politely asked about one of the chairs from the sale circular. Seemingly annoyed, he told me everything was out, so if they had any, they would be on the floor. I am new to boating, so that was my first time in a West Marine, but my dad says he's gotten the same treatment in that store himself. I ended up buying the chairs through Amazon, as well as most of the "accessories" I needed to outfit my new boat.

                                I picked up these boat cushions on a BOGO sale about a month ago, they have been used pretty consistently on my sailboat since then. I have not had any issues with the color bleeding even though they have been wet multiple times and have been left to dry on deck. when shoved in a locker they deform quite easily, however they also lay flat with just a little adjustment also. All in all a good purchase for the price.

                                The fix perhaps to the bleeding blue?

                                Seem lightweight, but well constructed. I noticed some reviewers who purchased the older "Deluxe" cushions in blue were complaining that the color bled out and stained upholstery/seats. Just got some of these so I hope this "economy" model has that problem resolved prior to production or West Marine will be getting a call. One thing I already don't like is the straps - while convenient in a type IV flotation device - don't seem very convenient for comfort as they cannot be unlooped and wrapped around whatever seat you want to put them on (bleachers, canoes, etc). We'll see how much of a pain that is after I use them.
