See now I was thinking that if the sound of the splash didn't wake you, the water would

Restraint would be bad in an emergency... A friend of mine, who lives aboard a 50' stinkpot tied a metal pan and metal spoon to his leg so the noise would wake him and he wasn't tied to anything solid "in case of emergency". He kept the line long enough and the pan safely tucked out of the way of his first step... he said it worked! Who knows!

There was this one time I was onboard a frerr 41 with my friend who got me into sailing. He had had a rough night the night before and fallen asleep in the v berth. We ran into a big fat squall with 40Knots on the nose. We ended up on a rough beat for like a half hour and he slept through the whole thing. When he finally came up on deck he saw that we were all drenched and the sun was shining. "why are you guys all drenched?"

With my ex, once would not have been enough. She would have pulled me out and given me CPR just to push me in again when I awoke. But then she was more heartless than most ex's.
