Replacing V berth foam material

I'm finishing the main salon now. I used 4" high density foam ($24.95/yd @ JoAnn Fabrics) glued to 1" (5" total) for the settees, 4" for backrests, and 1" for other panels. I'm covering everything with Sunbrella upholstery fabric ($24/yd). We did this job for the quarter berth and V berth 3 years ago and it's holding up nicely.

I backed the cushions with pet screening to let the cushion breathe. Saw this on a "professional" job and really liked it.

I'll post photos in a day or so.
