Who said a V-berth can’t be comfortable?
Boat projects continue as we make Gem&I more and more like home. One way we did this was cutting a memory foam mattress pad to fit the triangle shape of our V-berth to make it more comfy, cozy!
We used our Amazon gift card to purchase a queen size memory foam mattress pad and had it shipped to the marina. Before the day got too hot, I took out all three cushions from the berth and laid them out on the dock.
Then I laid the foam mattress on top of it and realized that the long side of our V-berth is actually wider than a regular queen sized bed. So I decided to lay the foam mattress pad sideways and use the leftover pieces to fit the acute end once I had the majority cut out.
I traced the outline of the cushions puzzle-pieced together with a black sharpie on the mattress pad and then used scissors to cut on the line I had made. When I was finished, I out everything back into place inside the boat. We are amazed at how much a difference the mattress pad makes for us! We actually think it is more comfortable than now than our regular mattress at the apartment.
How do you make your berth comfortable?
We would love to hear from you! Some berths (especially on older boats) tend not to be as comfortable as your mattress at home. What ways have you tried (successfully or not) to make your berth as comfortable as possible?
