Re: Adding 2" foam to v-berth bedding

I dont have v berth. the froli would be for the under cockpit berth where headroom is a premium. replacing with 4" foam means new upholstery. so it would be about $200 and reuse the 3"cushions I have . get better support and have air flow under the cushion. I may try this.

I already had 4" of a quality thick foam mattress. My initial concern was about ventilation under the mattress to prevent mold and mildew. I decided to go for a solution that provided ventilation and additional comfort, the Froli Star system does both well. It provides 1-3/4" of space for ventilation under the mattress and it was a significant comfort improvement over just the mattress alone. $279 for a standard V berth, not cheap.

Been there, done that.
Buy the densest (most expensive) foam you can afford!.
5" preferred, but 4" will work.
Put a layer of foam carpet under-lament under your new mattresses.
You'll see why after you have done it.
