Re: Sleeping underway risk
Safest way to sleep would be in a standing position. Strap yourself in with a harness.
This position would offer the least chance of getting impaled by the periscope of a surfacing submarine.
..but you'd drown instead. Wonderful.
Regardless, you can't sleep standing up on any yacht I've ever been on.
