Cat's not stuffed.
The overhead hatch
has velcro around it with light blocking fabric
which is easily stripped off and put away when you want the light.
The overhead clock is double sticky taped to a bit of SS metal which is slid under the light.
It's easy to see what time it is in the middle of the night by pushing a button for backlight.
We added hypervent? hydrovent? under the mattress which made a world of difference in keeping the mattress from absorbing moisture. No more clammy sheets!
We also added a 2" memory foam topper to the pathetically skinny foam pads which came with the boat
Admittedly the boat
was designed as a racer/cruiser, but sleeping on the original foam was an ordeal we weren't willing do do in the tradeoff between boat speed and human comforts!
A tip about insulation
, we are redoing our fridge with Aerogel insulation
. It's expensive, but you might think about using this for hull
insulation. It's a blanket which has much better R value per inch than foam.
It would be easier to conform to hull
shape, and thinner as well.
First though, if you're new to liveaboard
, you have to vent moisture. Keep the airflow going through the boat.
It's a small space.
