Under our bed in the front of the boat we have a lot off water under the matrass after a night off sleeping there.
This seems to be caused by the gpr wich does not let any moist come trough.
I wanted to make holes in the gpr but this is not easy becaus it is not solid gpr but sandwich with balsa in it.
Now i made holes in the hatches and two ventilation holes in the side of the bed.
Does any one have sugestions to prevent moist under the matras?
greetings Marcel

Marcel,
 
The best way to solve this is to put  a slatted floor (translation of lattenbodem?) under the matras. I have done this in the past and that will solve your problem and you will sleep even better. I bought mine at compass for our previous boat and I will do the same for our new Hanse.
 
Cheers,
 
Michiel

Marcel is right, there was already a post on this subject, and some guys went to Ikea to purchase this. Ok it does rise the bed mattress above the bed edge, but what a comfort to sleep,..

Thanks gregor
This is the material i was looking fot but I did not know wat is was and were I could buy it
I takes the moist down to the gpr and there the ventilation holes can lead it away.
For us it is better than the slattet floor because the matras comes up to much and the room  under the bed is not so easy to reach anymore.

The black matting is what we use under our mattresses and it works very well.
I also allow some to come up the sides of the mattress to keep it off the hull of the boat.

Condensation under the mattress in Vee berth was a problem with my 371 when I first got it. I installed a solar vent (the kind with a rechargeable battery) in the middle of the overhead hatch.  Problem solved and after 5 years the vent fan is still whirring. I also leave the window in the aft separate shower compartment open at all times as it is sheltered from rain by the dodger/spray hood.
 
Letting air circulate under the mattress is a good idea, but the moisture comes off sleeping bodies, and you must allow it to escape from the boat.
 
I have a hygrometer in the main cabin. Last weekend we went away in the boat, and the nights were very cold, near freezing. The hygrometer read 70% humidity, but after I put on the Espar hot air furnace for a couple of hours I notice the humidity was down to 45%.  We had a very comfortable and dry sleep.

Marcel, in our 350 we're using iKEA slatted bed bases
http://www.ikea.com/gb/en/catalog/products/50111798
These cost about 30 Euro in NL and can be easily adapted. We're using them in our aft cabin. no moist and perfect support!
We don't have them in the front (yet) as our son (8) has occupied this cabin.
We're not able to use them right now as I'd broke my ankle last week....Confused

Regards, Rob

After using the thruster system we dicided to improve our front bed , without the truster system , and we made the bed bigger and we added more hatches in the bed bottom to have more storage space under the bed.
Only some paint to finisch but there fore the temperature muts go up , because it is -3 here at the moment
greetings Marcel

Try www.shipshapebedding.co.uk Their Dry Mat an excellent product (Service was good too); benefit is it does not raise the mattress above the lip and easy to fit, easy to cut 3 sides & gain access to lockers etc. Result for my 370 first night onboard after fitting absolutely no damp and really warm dry nights sleep in sleeping bag this was during the autumn when normally condensation is a problem.

Tony

Hi.
I've used the IKEA option the last year and been very satisfied with it. No moisture and added comfort and a cheap solutionBig%20smile. I also can't see the problem with the slightly rised position of the matress.

I have bought the Compass solution for my 370. They delivered it yesterday to the boat and i plan to go there next week to instaal it. Is this an easy job?

Today I installed the Compass beds. It needed som sawing, but in the end it was easy to install. In a few weeks I'l bring the matrasses to the boat so that I can try them out.

Hope this solves the humidity problem!!

Ron
