V-Berth Cushions
« on: September 04, 2012, 12:44:13 AM »
Hi All,

Last year during Goombay's 189nm race, we unfortunately our V-Berth cushions floated away.

I am looking for replacements.  Anyone have any they do not use?

Thanks,

Gregg

After reading the SA posts I bet the Wisconsin Department of Health was pleased with their demise!

I would be interested in ordering some if a group order would help make them more reasonably priced.

cheers
Nate

Nate,

Don gave me the name of the original maker in California.  If I cannot find some out there, I will see if my local company can make them.  I will let you know.

I had at one point looked at a company that made highdesity water proof cushions for pool industry use though I could have them cut to spec pretty reasonably.  I think they were about 2.5 inches thick.  I will do a tiny bit of reasearch as well.

Depending on cost. I may be interested. What so you think they will run?
