Question Islander 28 cushions

Does anyone have pics of the starboard settee pulled out with cushions in place? I've tried every permutation and can't seem to get the cushions to fill the space. I believe that the cushions are stock from the factory as is the "pullout" and I can't solve the "puzzle".
HELP!:

I don't have a picture, but I think I can describe it easily enough. Open out the berth to make the flat platform first, then use the seat cushions of both settees (not the back cushions - the seat cushions) to make the mattress. The port settee cushion should be rotated 180 degrees from its normal position - that is, the end that is forward on its settee is aft on the berth.

If you're expecting perfection, don't - it won't be. We fill the gaps with a sleeping bag, bunched and stretched, to make a comfortable berth.

Re: Islander 28 cushions

I went even further than just pulling out the staboard settee on my old Islander 28. I made a transition board that bridged the gap between the two settee's and kept a piece of closed-cell foam to lay on top of the cushions at night to keep things held together. A queen-sized bed on a 28-foot boat is a luxury indeed. :-)


Always approach the dock at the speed you wish to hit it.

Re: Islander 28 cushions

Hi Fodder,
Thanks for the pic.
I was really hoping to find the "factory" solution so as to not have extra foam and boards to store.

Great idea, I'm going to investigate doing this set up for the wife and I. The storage of the extra piece of foam can be stored in the 1/4 birth or V-berth
