Re-upholster boat - first project - tips?

I'm gearing up to tackle my first upholstery project - I am re-upholstering a ski boat . I plan to use the existing upholstery as pattern. I purchased an older Adler 267 that I'm trying to figure out how to use. Have marine grade vinyl, monel rustproof staples (for marine work) and have read Automotive Upholstery Handbook by Don Taylor. Still a little scared to get started though! I'm wondering if anyone has tips, suggestions, other helpful instruction books, etc. I do have sewing experience, but mainly garment/quilt piecing and quilting with a long-arm quilting machine but really know very little about this type of work.
