Re: How to sleep
Anybody who goes offshore on a multiday passage without lee cloths or boards is NUTS.
Being offshore with a broken limb is to be avoided!
You must have a secure berth, that means one that prevents you from becoming a an unguided missile inside the boat in the event of being hit by a rogue wave.
Sleeping on the floor is only partially safe especially on a larger boat where you could still go a fair distance.
A couple of eye bolts and a piece of canvas 4'x3' provides the basics.
