Storage

Hi,
We are new to living aboard and just purchased a Hunter 420. We were wondering about storing the extra cushion for the salon settee while cruising. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Storage

If this is the inserts to make the settee into another berth the best thing to do is leave them at home while cruising. Cruising boats are only big enough for two.

Re: Storage

We also have a 42 foot boat. We don't have a large double bunk anywhere and it has a traditional V-berth. We have put a t-bag up on the deckhead over the v-berth and use it to store extra linens etc. Might work for the cushion or even just a net? I like the T-bag because it covers the stuff up so the stuff stays cleaner but has ventilation too. These can usually be found online or at stores that cater to powerboats like Cabelas and other large sporting good (ie hunting and fishing) stores.

Re: Storage

We are rarely in our V-berth during the day and rarely in our main cabin overnight. We simply move the extra cushion once in the morning and once at bedtime.

Re: Storage

If you think you need to take it with you, you might concider putting it into a vac bag, it will be much smaller and well protected.
