Re: Sleeping preference?

Got those snap together plastic pseudo springs at last Annapolis show. Work great. Wife's hands would go numb and her shoulders would bug her. No issue since putting them in. Also get some air under the mattress.
We sleep in the forward queen if not moving. Out of traffic flow so one can be up early and do their thing without waking the other.
Underway like sleeping in the quarter berth. If it not really nasty crack one of the ports facing inboard below the cockpits seats. Between that and the repeater of the nav display on the iPad know what's going on without getting up.
Wife likes sleeping in forward queen if going downwind . Everyone likes sleeping aft of the mast going upwind.
Try to never make people hot bunk. Gives them a sense of having their own space.

Re: Sleeping preference?

My sleeping preference is a 69


But one night there was a big bang on deck and I woke screaming at a vision of Slocumb's Pilot of the Pinta so I bit down hard.


Since then 4 inch foam has been good.

Re: Sleeping preference?

Ive been looking for a place that could make me a v birth futon. Ive done lots of searching on the web and there are lots of futon places that say custom built, but they dont really make odd shapes. Any ideas???

I sleep on the iFoam 5s. It has half the battery life of other foams, but it's just so nice looking.

Called the Froli Sleep system.

We have it on our Irwin Citation 34 in the V-Berth and really think it makes a big difference.!

And yes, a hundred times to sheets and blankets!
