In Topic: Improving cushions...

Yesterday, 09:16 PM

I think the fact that the foam is only compressed for a few hours each year...as much time a 12-15 days aboard would accrue...it seems to have spunk. I may look at a major upgrade for the V-berth as part of this project.


If I have to replace all the foam with new high end foam, I may as well buy a new boat.


In Topic: What's that smell?

The best article I read stated these points...


- fresh water flush


- very good hoses...he recommended VETUS


- and most important, 2 vents per tank, one to each side to allow a flow through of oxygen to keep the good bacteria alive....my understanding is that it is the dead "good" bacteria (aerobic?) and the resultant bad bacteria (anaerobic?) that cause the stink.


This is a change I am going to make on GK when I add second tank.

It's funny that someone mentioned the warm glow of the cabin after dark...I noticed that on our cruises this summer...soft incandescent lights are so inviting & comforting...LED's not so much.

The smell of coffee perking while I'm trying to wake up in the v berth...
