thanks in advance

That looks like handy stuff. We have used a plastic grating kinda stuff in the past and it made a huge difference.

This stuff is great. We installed it under our cushions in the forward berth and have had *zero* problems with condensation since.

If you are considering importing some to Oz, they don't ship outside the Continental US.
May need to use a third party shipper.
I need a boat full as well, would be interested in how you get it here, or sharing an order.

Thats the way guys. There are specialist shippers to Oz over there for all the Ebayers. US delivery address, will hold to make a "shipping " package and send.

Most stuff is free shipping to the continental.

How do I know, an ageing BMW.

Looks like the price is about the same after some rough calulations there is only $6 between them & not much in the exchange rate at the moment- do you think the US stuff looks like better quality?

I'm working out for 4 single bunks & a QS bed I need AUD$504 of the US stuff & the same in Aus will be AUD$748

No offence.
I have no idea on quality, I guess plastic is plastic.

We just want to stay cool in Queensland, so whatever it costs .
I suspect transport of stuff with that amount of volume from the US would not be cheap.
I would go for the Oz stuff as well.

Are you just using foam for the mattress, or is there something that breathes as well?

Is a home building product like this sold in Oz?

http://www.benjamino...key/homeSlicker

or

http://www.benjamino...homeSlickerPlus

This may be a more economical way to go.

We are just upgrading from foam to "Springs fully insulated with extra deep ultra density premium plus foam". We use the boat most wekends & will retire on it probably. We ended up with the bottom of the foam being a bit soggy in QLD last year.

We have this on GK, and have never regretted it...as well as allowing air under the mattress, it also made it much more comfortable.

This is a hilarious example of "marine" products pricing versus more terrestrial applications. It's actually called Enkadrain and costs less than $1.50 a square foot - used for foundation drainage it's pretty much the state of the art.

I've got a 150'x5' (45x1.6m) roll in my garage. Not sure what shipping would cost to AUS - it's about .5m in diameter...

Look here: http://www.colbond-u...tion-walls.html

There's a sketchy Enkadrain brochure on the right side of the page. It's the same stuff.

The version I have is 1.6m wide - perfect for a queen-size berth. The newest version is made of recycled HDPE - mine was the pure stuff - suitable for a virgin berth. ;-)

Enkadrain 9120 is what I see on a US price sheet - 0.8" (2 cm thick). comes in 1x30m rolls. $1.21/ft2; roughly $300 per roll. Don't think 1/4" will allow enough air to circulate.

This is the sort of talk that makes CA great.

Ozee, it's nice to have you visiting. I feel honored to have the cover girl with us humble cruisers here.

I love Star Trek too. Which is your favorite series? I have to go with Jean Luc. "Engage."

You've gotta see the "I love Patrick Stewart" tribute from the "American Dad" cast for his role at Avery Bullock, twisted deputy director of the CIA on the series:

"Say, do you perchance have any Gatorade? It seems I left all my electrolytes with your daughter..."
