I made the decision early on to redo the “factory” v-berth design. The original v-berth consisted of two, six foot long, 3/8″ thick sheets of marine plywood that was covered with a very 1970’s plaid sofa upholstery and three inches of foam.
These were too big. Both from having to wrestle on and off the boat and to access the storage areas below the cushions.
I won’t even mention what they smelled like.
