|svs3||How does Tempurpedic foam do in the cold? I've heard it tends to freeze.|

We have a double size berth in the aft cabin which has the standard 3" foam mattress. Although my wife and I slept there regularly the first year, it's used mostly by guests now.
We actually prefer the forward cabin, since it has a huge V-berth when the middle insert is in place. I bought a 5" Tempurpedic foam overlay two seasons ago which made an incredible improvement in comfort.
The berth's longest dimensions are 7'-4" long x 7'-10" wide, so I bought a king size pad which, after cutting to size, fits very well with two forward cut-off pieces joined to the aft corners. Since the bed is always left intact, storage wasn't an issue.

|Freesail99||I now have 5 inches of Tempurpedic foam for all my seat/sleeping cushions. My aft berth is large enough for a twin mattress. A few more inches I could have had a full mattress in there.|

|uspirate||I was told by a friend to visit Galaxy Foam. we bought 4" thick firm for the V berth and 2" for the seat cushions, i sleep better than a baby on this stuff. ever see the space mattress on tv where the chick jumps on the bed without spilling the wine glass? same type of stuff. about $150 for a 4'x8' pad you can cut to shape if desired. comes in several thickneses and firmness. I swear to this stuff!|

|svs3||Therma-Rest makes some really thick (about 2" thick) terry cloth covered self-inflating sleeping pads that might be worth considering|

Custom mattresses are available.
Cost big bucks and you have to send in a paper template in most cases for a quote. Search and you will find lots of different manufactureres of Custom Boat Mattresses.

|Bermuda30||I've never had much luck with the inflatable beds, they just don't seem as robust as they should be. I have one in my apartment at school (Read as: poor college student), and it has at least 10 patches on it from this term alone. I have a knockoff memory foam aboard though, sleeps beautifully.|

For storing a foam pad check out the "Space Bags", those big thick ziplock bags used fo clothing storage. Ziplock also makes them now, but the space bag folks now make them in suit/dress length, which probably would make it possible to just fold the mattress in the middle and insert it. Once you suck or squeeze the air out--those bags really squeeze things down, same way as the "self-inflating" camping mattresses, or better. And of course they keep it wet/dry, as it may be. (I'd let it dry out a bit after getting out of bed before stowing it.
