from : Series Drogue, ocean survival
"companionway doors should be checked at a loading corresponding to a water
jet velocity of approximately 15 ft./sec"
How do you check that ?
"Safety straps designed for a load of at least 4g should be provided for crew restraint. All heavy objects in the cabin
should be firmly secured for negative accelerations and drawers and lockers should be provided with latches
or ties which will not open even with significant distortion of the hull
Huh...4g (39.24m/s2), if latches
(lockable) can endure that, not sure hinges will...
Else, Parachute vs Drogue
(I am not looking forward for a Ford vs Chevy discussion)
