Re: V Berth Mattress

Memory foam seems to be a love-it or hate-it thing.

We had a tempurpedic mattress and couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Very hot to sleep on and caused back problems for both my wife and I. Because you sink into it you tend to move less in your sleep and this can aggravate some kinds of back problems.

We went with four inch medium density foam and sleep aboard every weekend spring thru fall. It's comfortable but I'm going to price out the Froli system at annapolis this year to see if I can make it even better.

YMMV
