Froli Sleep Springs ms

I was wondering if anybody has experience with Froli Sleep springs ??

I like the idea of reduced moisture but wonder if the springs hold up and provide good support.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I tried the search also and found only one mention of froli systems and everything else was about foam. Maybe under something else, not much under Froli Sleep Springs. Nothing under Froli other than this link. Maybe SD could be more specific. Or maybe the search engine is not working today

Yea, if you look at sailingdog's search he used Google, not the forum search. Click on the link and it shows the format used to search Sailnet from google, it can be used for any forum by the way. As much as I don't like there privcey policly I have to say Google rocks.

Sailnet's internal search function is not very usable for most people... using Google is an easy way around that problem.

We got the system last week and it has been wonderful. We live aboard and so far no moisture either. And it was extremely easy to put down too, so we are very pleased with the system. In the interest of fully disclosure though, I have to say that the dealer has the slip next to me and I got pretty good service and a chance to try it out before we bought. But honesty, there are several on our dock that have bought it and all seem very pleased.

As a follow up.. I bought the sleep system and installed it last week. Very simple. Especially when I had the 1st mate do the instal while I winterized the engine. It really does make a big difference and looking forward to see how well they hold up.

A quick question on the Froli

Do any of you have storage under your berths? The kind you access from the top. Is the Froli system flexible enough to lift it out of the way to get to the storage areas? Or do you have to take the thing apart?

Thanks
Dave
