Sleeping underway risk
As I was off watch a few days ago and lying down below I got to thinking about what would happen if we hit something.
We were going about 7 knots.
If you are lying down with your head forward and the boat hits a container or the pilot does something bad and you hit a reef or rock, I suspect it would be about the same as being dropped on your head from at least a couple of feet.
Almost certain neck injury probably death.
I slept with my feet forward but I noticed that not all the crew did that.
Am I the only one who thinks of weird stuff like that?
