You must have reeaaalllly long legs or a good stool

I am tall and on our Cat30 V birth I would have to jump up and in--- so I agree that mem foam etc etc is a huge improvement on original cushions but my , the height you would have to leap..an olympic event

-- we also tried a single feather bed-- warm and soft.

use good votive candles-- we ever only needed two in our cat 30 --to keep down condensation that occurs when warm sleepy bodies are exhaling steamy snores into ever colder night air.

Mind you the Cat is pretty good at holding in heat, your deck house is almost 1.75 inches thick, built like a tank-- don't ever think you can drill a hole and install solar fans in just a morning.... we tried LOL

The Froli system is great

I can't say enough how great the Froli system is. We installed it 3 years ago and we think it is the best upgrade that we've made to the boat. Our 2 week cruises that we take each summer are much more comfortable now.

Have to laugh myself. Having done a multitude of projects on our boat, I now try to budget at least two hours to do the simplest thing imaginable on board. And that doesn't include having the cell phone on speed dial to the nearest hospital.

I am currently using a standard 4" foam slab and installed the Frolli system, which did make things better, added some give to the matteress, and elimanated the under matteress moisture problem, however I need to replace the the slab and am also going to install a topper, I should also add that I suffer from scullyosis and I have lived onboard for the last 2 years. The Frolli system has made things a lot better but it is not the final answer in my case.

We purchased a novafoam topper from Costco, (essentially an imitation tempurpedic topper, about 2" thick), and cut it to fit right over the existing cushions. I used to get up around 6am because I was so uncomfortable. Now, I sleep easily till 7-8am, and hate getting up because I am so comfortable. Even the wife enjoys sleeping on the boat more now!
