You are correct, vinyl, and all other roll goods, are measured by the running yard, which is 3' by 4 1/2' , but that comes out to 13 1/2 square feet, not 18 square feet.

The rule of thumb is that the average hide is 45 to 55 square feet, which is equivalent to 3 yards of roll goods due to the waste factor when using leather.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
