Chart Table VS Ribs

Sooo, the previous owner of SV Rad Mode did all of these calculations regarding the chart table he built and how much weight it would take to break it if, for instance, a 200 pound man fell through the companion way hatch and landed on it.

Glad to say, after falling through our companion way hatch and landing on this chart table, that his calculation were correct and our beef-cake chart table defeated my ribs with ease.

I was about to come through the companion way hatch into the galley when both hands (which were supporting 90% of my body-weight at the time) slipped and attempted to send me falling to my death. I spun about 75 degrees to my left and landed right on the point of the chart table, on my ribs, right behind my right upper-arm.

As you can see from the featured image on this thread, the table is beef. It didn’t give whatsoever. Luckily that knife wasn’t there when I fell on the table. And it’s a good thing I’m durable.

      No, I’m fine. Takes a longer fall to break me. I guess I’m durable.
