This may be the greatest upgrade to boating since the sail ! Thanks.

We bought a 4" memory foam topper from these guys for $180. We cut it to fit with a serrated knife and put a regular mattress pad over it to hold it to the current mattress.

For over 30 years, i've slept on everything from a cloth pipe berth to the cockpit. Our beds had what turns out to be 1.5 inch toppers on them before, which felt nice, but didn't really do much. Our mattresses themselves are in good shape, but like most, are very hard.

This thick topper was night and day. It's softer than the real temperpedic at home, but put over the existing mattress, we are brand new for what it would have cost just to have a good mattress measured.
