Love Your Boat But Hate Your Boat Mattress?

Friday, June 29th, 2012

For many, owning a boat is a long awaited dream come true. But once your mattress begins to give out, spending time on your dreamboat can become uncomfortable, or even create problems (a grumpy spouse is no fun!).

There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to purchasing a custom boat mattress and initially the process may seem a little overwhelming. I have made hundreds of custom boat mattresses and therefore have some insight on the process of purchasing a new mattress for your boat!

First, it’s important to determine if you could make do with the mattress you already have and simply purchase a mattress topper for added support and comfort. If this is not going to cut it, then it’s time to get a new mattress!

Next, you need to consider some technical but important issues when it comes to boat mattresses. These include weight, material that will last in a marine environment, and size.

Weight is important and needs to be taken into consideration when purchasing a mattress for your boat. You will want to figure out the current weight of your mattress and go from there. Since there are many different types of materials and thicknesses in the industry to meet your needs, you will want to consider what the right balance between the weight of the mattress, measured in pounds per cubic foot, and the thickness needed for your support.

You will also want to consider the marine environment your mattress will be living in. Latex can be a great choice because the foam is naturally resistant to mold and mildew and because it breathes very well, which is good because the last thing you want on your boat is a large mildewing mattress. While there are rust resistant innersprings for some mattresses, which do cut down on the deterioration of a mattress, foam mattresses are more porous and can be made with anti-microbial materials. Therefore, memory foam and latex mattresses generally tend to absorb less moisture and are better suited for a damp environment.

How And When To Replace Your Boat Mattress

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Many people who are new to owning a boat do not initially realize that the proper maintenance of a boat mattress can be very different from the mattress they have on their regular beds. A boat mattress has to live in a far more moist environment than is typical for a mattress, and this can make it vulnerable to becoming musty or even becoming a home for mold. If your mattress is old, used, or you just don’t feel comfortable sleeping on it, you should plan to replace it so that you can get a good night’s sleep.

When you are looking for a boat mattress, you need to understand that they often don’t use the sort of easy standard sizes that regular beds use. You will need to take measurements of the length, width, and depth of the frame the mattress will be sitting in. If it is irregularly shaped in some way, you may even want to make a paper template of the frame so that you can provide it to a company that makes custom mattresses. This will allow them to ensure that they create something that will make use of the allowable space perfectly.

You will probably have some idea of the type of material you want to use for your boat mattress based on what has been comfortable to you on your regular bed. You should take the difference in environment into account, however. Someone who finds that memory foam is comfortable but makes them too warm in a heated home may feel that the extra heat these hold is welcome if their boat tends to be a little chilly. On the other hand, a latex mattress is less responsive to temperature and will behave more consistently in different environments if you intend to go boating in many climates.

When you are ready to order your boat mattress, remember that the most important thing you can do to assure that you get a good night’s sleep is to buy a high quality product that will be ready quickly. There are companies in the United States that make excellent mattresses to your specifications and can have them to you very fast so that you can enjoy your time on your boat even more.
