Pillow fight

The designers of our boat focused on seaworthyness and performance, but didn’t pay too much attention to a comfy sofa–they just built watertanks and then put the cushions on top of them. Sitting on the sofa for a longer time (e.g. an overlenght movie) has always been a real trial for our bottoms. In Tahiti we bought a 5 cm matress which has been waiting in the forecabin for a rainy in-door period. Yesterday we started the project: We cut the thin matress and glued it on top of the old, tough one. The next step was fitting new covers and sewing them together (we still carry a few metres of the fabric we bought in Panama). After two days of fighting with unruly corners and resisting flaps we now have a bum-friendly settee opposite the table in the saloon. As the Pfaff (our trusty sewing machine) was already out to play we manufactured 4 new pillows for our bed and another 4 from the sofa fabric to make the settee even cozier.
