The innerspring mattress eventually got even worse, sagging so much that no topper or boards under it could help. So we bought a new mattress. Now we have this king size memory foam topper that I thought I would cut up and use to replace the 30+ year old foam on the boat. Besides the weight, what other factors would argue against doing this? BTW, the boat is a lightweight trailer-sailer used mainly for daysailing 3 times a week with only an occaisional overnight. As an unemployed victim of the recession I can't justify the expense of replacing the cushions but as long as I have this available . . . ?
