Lee boards are just fine. More sturdy, a little less comfortable. I wouldn't turn my nose up at them.

Agreed. There is a limit to what I can pack in on delivery. I usually bring a couple of rolls of blue painters tape to protect varnished handholds from wedding and class rings and other assorted bits that are likely to be banged into.

I've bought inexpensive single mattress pads (which can be cut in half lengthwise) and single fitted sheets charged back to the owner to be sure crew could flake out on the settees without generating damage potential. Crew have to get rest or they aren't crew anymore.

sail fast and eat well, dave
