Re: Replacing V berth foam material

I'm just in the process of doing exactly this ! About a year ago I was browsing the forums and a thread about upgrades and revisions everyone made to their boat. Lots of great ideas, but the one that really stoked me was a guy who replaced his V berth cushions with memory foam, and recut it so that the seams ran perpendicular to a sleeping body. I knew I had to emulate because falling between the cracks of the oddly shaped cushions while sleeping was so annoying. Plus I was excited to replace my old and worn cushions with some denser, more supportive foam. I found a 4" mattress topper on craigslist for $25 that was still in the shrink wrap, and purchased some weather resistant canvas from the fabric store...already finished sewing 2 of the 3 cushion covers and I can't believe how good they came out. Simple and fun upholstery project to seriously improve quality of life aboard.
