I did not re upholster my cockpit seats, but I did make new cabin cushions for the v-berth out of closed cell foam and sunbrella, cut, stitched and velcroed at home.

Thanks, Terry:

I already have a hatch in the splashwell, which I use to access the bilge pump, inside-mounted transducer, and fuel filter. So I don't think the tank can go down in that space...
