I'm going to be replacing my boat's two queen-size mattresses (it's a multihull
, so we can get away with it) and I'm going to have them custom made. I'm particularly interested in hearing from folks who have actually had this done. The issue is that I'd like to keep the overall thickness down to 3 inches, uncompressed. My current
ones are 5" and cause my head
to scuff the headliner
when sitting up reading at night. I'm considering using two separate density foams to achieve a comfy base and avoid "bottoming out". I've tried memory foam covers, and while nice, I found them to be too form fitting to allow easy tossing and turning in bed
. I could add an inch of memory foam, if it were encapsulated within the mattress itself, because it collapses pretty completely.
Does anyone have experience building a mattress from scratch? I have had several mattresses over the years and still haven't found the right combination.
