Linen for beds

Where's the best place to buy sheets for the beds?

Re: Linen for beds

You can just used regular sheets, sized large enough for the bottom cushion(s) on your primary bunk(s). And the only "trick" is to buy a few sets of sheet stays, so that you can "tune" your sheets to fit snugly.

Ah, that, & to make sure that you have a good moisture management system... for the bunks & cushions, as well as the boat, given condensation levels underneath of bunks when the weather's cool to cold.

PS: I forgot to add that you may want to try out something with a bit of a synthetic blend(ed with cotton). As salt's damn near impossible to get out of things, especially if you live aboard. And once it's in sheets, given it's nature (hydrophilic), they'll almost always feel a tiny bit damp & cool, on all but the hottest, driest days... even in spots like SoCal. - Just a "think".

Same place I buy my home linen. Bass-Pro shop.

Preferably camouflage. Not because I need to hide in bed, I just like camouflage.

Like Uncivilized said. Regular sheets are all you need. Whether your preference is Egyptian Cotton, Wal-Mart or camouflage.

I don't think that would work for me...unless they were pink sheets... or maybe tan with pink bits.

But ditto here.. standard linen sheets, handy if cut down to size and resewn if used in v-berths, quarter berths, etc
