The other factor, stretch, will spread the decelleration over a longer time lowering the peak force.

Of course if you stretch to far, you might go half way over.

If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble.
