This is the first post of many I plan on how to minimize discomfort while microcruising. These tips are things that worked for me on my boat, your mileage may vary as they say.
Knowing I would be crawling around on the floor a lot, basically living on it, I knew it needed some sort of padding. Something durable and waterproof, something that wouldn’t get in the way, something easy to clean, something that wouldn’t be too slippery.
I settled on 2 foot by 2 foot puzzle mats, 3/4 inch thick. I got mine on Amazon. Amazon Prime free shipping is wonderful in Hawaii.
The foam is easy to cut with a table saw and the belt sander makes for nice edges. They are closed cell foam and have a tatami texture pattern molded in to make them less slippery.
