Ian & Julie Ian & Julie Sun 11 Jul 2021 16:58:44 The V berth shape of the Manta makes it awkward if you’re using normal sized sheets and duvets don’t you think ?
So I finally got round to doing something about it.
Cut a 4” mattress topper to fit the V.
Stitched a sheet to make a fitted bottom sheet.
Cut a duvet to fit the V
Refoamed the existing cushions
Result : bliss 💤 and ship's cat 🐱 Theo agrees !

Sasha Sasha Mon 12 Jul 2021 15:58:45 Amazing! What is blue lines above bed and below white hull thingy? Did you just paint it or make the pockets?
Ian & Julie Ian & Julie Mon 12 Jul 2021 22:09:45 Ah yes Sasha, this was a breakthrough , the rather stylish blue lines are in fact camping rolls ! Yes , I bought two rolls and simply cut them to length (width is perfect) and secured them by pushing each one down and wedging between the bed cushions and the internal hull. No glues needed as they just sit there.
No condensation, they are lovely and warm to the touch and look great.

And whoever coined the phrase, "quiet as a mouse", has never stepped on one, like I did last night 😱 lol.
