I'm intrigued HD foam is being recommended? Am I right in assuming HD foam is very finely packed thus Dense foam? (hence the name!) As I was advised to steer away from this by my upholsterer as he said it retains water once it has penetrated the foam. Makes em heavy and they then rot. He advised and supplied a very open coarse foam that had a more plastic feel to the open gauze. His belief being the larger open gauze allows water through but does not retain it. I have to say he was right, they are light and never get heavy when drenched. And they have not shown any signs of going mouldy. Because it is made from a more plastic feeling material the overall thickness can be reduced. Mine are about 1.5inches thick, feel very supportive, but soft enough for bumps. In fact, having slept on the aft bench three times overnight, I can honestly say they are very comfortable . . better than many beds. They feel a bit like memory foam to sit or lay on.
