decides, with your boat. The point I am making is only related to
your question as to whether a destruction test is pretty much all we
need to know. If that were the case, there wouldn't be all these
testing methods like the hydromat, we could just hit things with
hammers. The interesting point the gougeons make is that things
often fall appart not with the big blow, but a spar just falls over
in harbour on a gentle day. Why? Millions of cycles to failure, with
each little click of the halyard as the boat sways this way an that.
It isn't only the big loads, but also the constant little loads.
But again, no need to worry unless there are realy fidgity people on
your sofas. Also are these structural? If not, they could be bean
bags for all it would mater.
