What cushions do I use to turn 32' C&C dinette into a berth.

I am wondering what cushions I should use to turn my dinette into a bed, 1982 32' C&C, It seems like the boat only came with one extra cushion that doesn't fit anywhere except atop the dinette however I only have one of these cushions and the table has room for 2, are there supposed to be 2 or is a cushion from the settee or nav station used? Thanks

Usually there are extra cushions or use the cushions from the back of the settee. I have a friend with a C&C 32 - do you want me to check with him?

Please check with him! The previous owner never used the dinette as a bed so he didn't know. Thanks!

Which cushions to use is a puzzle. I use the dinette seat back cushions. They are contoured so they make a lumpy bed. They also don't fit the table exactly and as aresult they stick out slightly. To smooth out the lumps, I bought a small memory foam mattress and lay it over the cushions. I role up the memory foam and store it in the v-berth when not in use.

Everyone who has slept on this bed says it is very comfortable. I've never used it myself.

:-( I might have to have some cushions made. Wish C&C would have made those dinette backs fit better.

Ours fit great. NOt sure what the problem is for you. On thing we have done to make that a more comfortable bed and also prevent the cushions from sliding is purchase a cheap memory foam roll which campers use when sleeping in a sleeping bag in a tent. We got ours from either REI or LL Bean. When not in use it rolls up and takes virtua;;y no room and can be stowed in a small space. We put it under the cushions between them and the wood/ frame for the bed when we make it up. It prevents the cushions from sliding for one and also makes a softer bed. Cheap fix for about $15
