    Mattress size 3988 Berth(39)s-gctid805397

    Hello, I live in Colo. My 3988 is in Fla. The Wife is looking for new bedding for both Berths. I cannot find any info on the size of the mattress's for either. ie: Queen, or full? Or what size would work? Cheer's, Ken

    I got mine made at a custom mattress store. It is basically a queen with the corners chopped off to fit.

    I made a construction paper template and took it to the store. Make a second paper template 6 to 8 inches higher for the forward angles.

    Note that the forward corners need to be angled both to fit the support and to fit the hull shape or you end up with a large gap and a smaller mattress.

    Mine is 7 inch foam covered with a padded ticking.

    OOOPS, I see you are looking for bedding not a mattress.

    The best plan is to buy cotton Jersey knit sheet sets in the double size because the mattress is not as deep as a normal home mattress . They stretch nicely over the mattress and are easy to use.

    Many boaters use jersey knit as they conform to odd mattress angles and sizes.

    Add a queen size comforter and all is good.

    The second cabin mattress is longer and narrower. Again use a double size jersey knit sheet set with a double size comforter.

    Bed bath and Beyond offer a "Pure Beech" jersey knit product but I went back to cotton as it gives a lot of lint and did not last as long as cotton.

      We use a flat queen size and tuck it in well. The 2nd stateroom takes a fitted double.

        Thank's a lot for the info. I am sure I am going to have hundreds of question's in the near future. Just purchased the Boat and have only seen it once for about 30 min. It is going in for a bottom paint job, new Dripless and stuffing boxes and Remove and replace swim platform with 4 new Braces. Any suggestions for maintenance while it is out of the water?

          I have my 3788 here in Fl as well. Currently out of the water for everything you just mentioned. I added: pulled rudders replaced sealing o-rings (recommend you do same) added under water led full spectrum lights, add 2 addition trim tabs, updated the thru-hull transducer to a modern unit, full detail. I am at 8k so far @$60 an hour labor.

            That is a good price for Labor. The Marina mine is going to is $110.00 an hour. I will definitely get a quote for the rubber seals, but I'm about tapped out for this year. I figure the repairs for mine will be about $7,000 and I'm still not sure if they will be able to find the swim platform braces. Where are you located? The shop mine is going is in Ft. Meyers.

              Fort Pierce, other side. Riverside Marina has the best prices around and they do excellent work. I am sure you will find more things to do. I had roughly 12 blisters that had to be grinded out and repaired.

              Oh, and my brackets for the swim platform where shot. I had to have new ones fabricated.

                  Seems like a lot of us 37/3988s are having the same work done this year. My 99 3899 is currently on the hard for; raising swim step up 3 inches, swim step transom mounting reinforcing, both prop shafts balance, new PPS dripless, new props, new epoxy and bottom paint, new lettering, new hinges on lazerett hatches, new head gaskets and fuel injectors for both port and starboard engines, valve adj and timing, and canvas. Yep gonna break the bank...

                    Yea I hear ya, My list gets longer by the day. My Buddy in Florida delivered the boat from Cape Coral to Ft. Meyers to the Marina doing the repairs. He called me and said the engine throttles were out of sync and steering was slow to respond. Does anyone know how hard it is to "lube" and adjust the throttle and transmission cables? How hard is it to fix the steering issue? He thought maybe the hydraulics were leaking or air tank needed more pressure? Any thoughts? Hate to pay $110.00 an hour for something I can repair myself.

                      A fitted Queen works great in the forward berth, and fitted double for mid berth
