    hey all!

    New here, just bought a 40 open from a great guy that took great care of her!

    Wife is asking, what size sheets for the bed in the front berth. Need to spend a few nights on her and gathering provisions...

    Thank you!

    I believe we just have queen sheets on the fwd berth on our 40. They don’t fit great because of the odd shape of the bed, but doesn’t bother us enough to get custom sheets made. I’m guessing you have the same odd shaped bed?

    A king sized sheet fits the width well and you can tuck in the 4 corners.

    We actually bought a king sized memory foam mattress, then cut it to shape with an electric carving knife. It fits perfectly, very comfortable and is a LOT cheaper than trying to get a custom mattress made to fit.

    Here are some pics of the process. The bed is very comfortable and it was easy enough to just pin and sew the fitted sheets to fit as well.

    I have a question about AC. The original owner put in a 3rd AC and ran the duct up into the compartment under the starboard side seating. They install a grate and the air would cool the cockpit very well with the glass all shut. It looks like someone has removed what ever unit was put in but left the duct work. Has anyone done this there there Boat? Be nice to have that installed again but being how it was aftermarket I want to see if anyone has had any good luck with a system like this.

    I was thinking to do the same thing actually, but I was thinking to run it from the unit under the galley and just oversize it from stock.

    Looking forward to seeing what others have done. Maybe you should create a new post @Hop cooke ?
