I'm not admitting anything, OK? But I have it on good authority that when a 34' sailboat going 5.5K hits a rock (say somewhere near Roche Harbor, WA) if someone is standing facing aft in the cabin they can be thrown down the two steps to the galley area faster than they can even think about it. Yes, there could be broken bones, or necks (in the hypothetical example I gave above nothing but large bruises would have occurred).
