I want to install an open mesh under my cushions
to help with air circulation and keep the cushions
dry. From reading other posts on this subject, it seems that the consensus is to use HyperVent mesh. At $10US per linear foot for HyperVent it would cost me $300 to do both cabins and the settees on my boat
. Iíve been researching trying to find a more cost effective alternative. Has anyone tried using this product?
CedAir Roof Ventilation Mat
Itís designed to go under cedar roofing and provide an airway to allow the shingles to air out. It looks very similar to HyperVent but without the fabric
on one side that HyperVent has. Itís 1 meter wide and 10mm thick. At $2.50US per linear foot itís much more cost effective. You do have to buy a 60 foot roll, so Iíd have to go in with another boat
to use it all up, but I estimate it would take 29 linear feet to do all the cushions on my 10 meter monohull
, so 2 boats would use up a single
Has anyone tried this or similar products, have thoughts on it, or have other less expensive solutions?
