I doubt the boom could knock anyone out of the cockpit. It is both too short and too high to do so. I doubt it even clears the rear edge of the solid bimini.
But the falling overboard sounds pretty plausible... but why would they serve dinner and then go forward to douse the jib??? That doesn't make sense... why cook the food and then set the food and table before doing that.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
