Frequently Asked Questions

Please see a list of our most frequently asked questions below.  If you have a question that is not referenced below, don’t hesitate to Send Us Your Question

  • How Do I Place an Order?

    All orders start with a paper pattern that you or one of our distributors can easily make.  We have distributors in most parts of the country where you can try the different mattresses and choose the exact model.  The person you speak with will be the person measuring and making patterns that way HMC assures it can guarantee a proper fit.   The distributor will write order with bedding pads, sheets and finger space to HMC factory where mattresses are usually finished in 2 to 3 weeks.

    All boats, even production boats can vary from boat to boat and year to year with the importance of finger space around edges with keeper rails to be able to tuck in sheets and mattress pads.  It is best to have a new pattern each time to ensure proper finger space.

    Therefore, we have distributors worldwide who can measure your boat and also offer the opportunity to try each model out.   Find a rep.

  • Do Springs Rust on Innerspring Mattresses?

    Under normal conditions the padding and fabric keep condensation out of the inside allowing a rust free environment.  The vinyl bottom keeps sweat and condensation form seeping into a mattress. If concerned we can powder coat springs for an additional cost.

  • Does Latex Mold Or Mildew?

    No, latex does not support bacterial growth therefore it won’t mold or mildew which is one reason we extend the warranty.

  • Can You Feel the Hinge Fold?

    No,  you cannot feel the hinge fold because our patented design keeps a layer of padding above to hide the hinge line.  Hinge can run Head to Toe or Side to Side even off Center.
