rayncyn51 is on a distinguished road
This is another project that we are in the middle of. We are using a high quality high density, high compression open cell foam. Check out Foam 101 on newjsi dot com. OC is far more comfortable than CC, and the drain through stuff is way too expensive for the cabin. For covers we are using sunbrella on top, and a breathable poly-vinyl on the bottom. The bottoms will be resistant to absorbing condensation from the fiberglass, and the tops are breathable to facilitate drying. We are also putting zippers on everything to allow for removing covers for washing, or for drying out the foam, should it get seriously wet.
Are we there yet?
