Cushion Rebuilds, Part 3, Tadaaa

Red Ranger's interior is about to start its overhaul.

The V-berth cushions. ☑th Done.


The open issue is sizing. The SailRite cushion video is quite clear on measurements. Their advice is to measure the foam and then sew with a ½" seam allowance.

Does this compress the foam back to it's working shape?

Or does it leave each cushion 1" too small?

We'll find out soon enough.

Why so many parts?

The original V-berth layout had one long port side cushion with it's mirror on the starboard side and a single trapezoidal wedge that can be removed.

CA cut the long port and starboard sides into two parts: triangle and parallelogram. The parallelogram fits over the storage area under the V-berth. That way, you can get to the storage without lifting up all 6' of cushion.
