Default Sleeping pad for center console overnight trips

What is everyone using to sleep on one overnight trips? I have always used a hiking mat but it is only slightly better than the deck. Would like to step it up this summer. Anyone use an air mattress? Small hammock? Any recommendations?

Waterproof bean bags! They make different shapes. All you gotta do is kick back, grab a brew if that's your thing and star gaze. Next thing you know, you will wake up to that line screaming!

Good quality marine bean bags are a must. If somebody told me I had to sleep on a mat on the floor I wouldn't go. Get some bean bags man.

Air mattess. Use the electric air pump to fill it using alegator clamps to battery.

Hammock beats bag for sleeping cool and easy to stow.

I've used a chaise lounge cushion in the past.

For all you guys using Hammocks, would you mind showing some pics of your setups, where you are Mounting them, hardware used. I am wanting to use hammocks instead of bean bags. Thanks

Those seen on tv Air inflated long couch type things fit on the sides of my little 25' CC and sleep great. Haven't done an over night but provide for a great nap during slow trolling sessions.... you can fill with air to your preference.

I tie one end to front of t-top frame, not the bow, then the other end to the bow cleat. Make sure the line is good and won't chafe. A cushion below you is a good safety aid too. Very comfortable and will rock you to sleep.

I've seen that some people rig them between gunnel rod holders. I think some put a short piece of pipe with an eye bolt.

Go to Wally World and get a couple pool floats, they're about $3-$5/piece. Long, skinny and have a pillow, takes a couple minutes to blow up. Bean bags are nice too. Just recently tried out a couch pouch, not bad but can be tricky. I like beds that are collapsible and be stowed out of the way

I bought a cot tent and secured it with 6 straps to the stern of the boat. Worked really well and folded nicely for storage 4x4x1

bean bags.. or if we tie up to a rig, hang hammocks on the lowest level. woke up once when the sun was rising to an operator asking us how we did so far then offered us coffee!

I was going to ask about these since they look like you can roll them up and store extremely easy.

The Couch Pouch, we got a couple of them, they work but can be tricky. They want to roll w/ the boat so like said above, best place is between console and gunwale for stability or somewhere else that will stop it from wanting to roll w/ the swells. Pretty comfy things, I really like how you can lay out and flat vs propped up like a bean bag
