Why you need a waterproof boat mattress

Long overnight sailing trips can be an adventure, but it’s important to rest and get a good night’s sleep as you’re traversing the waves. However, one of the biggest obstacles to a comfortable rest is a wet, uncomfortable boat mattress.

Sailing on a boat is not like driving an RV or a camper. You’re surrounded by water and moist air, and the rocking of the ocean means your boat may let some stray waves dampen your boat’s interior. If you leave the wrong hatch open, your mattress might even get soaked. If your mattress isn’t designed to withstand water, it’s not going to dry anytime soon after getting wet.

Fortunately, you can easily get a boat mattress replacement made from water-resistant material. Latex foam, memory foam, and outdoor varieties of foam such as Dryfast are more resistant to moisture and microorganisms that grow in moist areas, such as mold and mildew. If your mattress is made from an open-cell foam like Dryfast, it will also dry very quickly even after being completely soaked. Furthermore, if you get a foam boat mattress from companies such as The Foam Factory, you can customize the shape of your mattress to make sure it fits perfectly inside your boat. Boats come in all shapes and sizes and it can be difficult to find a mattress that fits your boat perfectly. The experts at The Foam Factory will work with you to create a mattress in the exact shape and size that you need. Contact them today for more details.
