Re: Shock absorbing seat bottoms?
I wouldn't Builld the seats to flex. If your set on this concept, consider integrating shock-mitigating seat pedestals into the build.Several manufacturers sell them for the high-performance and military/rescue markets. They are pricey.
Don't take this the wrong way; but wouldn't slowing down be cheaper and easier?
This new ship here is fitted according to the reported increase of knowledge among mankind. Namely, she is cumbered end to end with bells and trumpets and clocks and wires. It has been told to me she can call voices out of the air or the waters to con the ship while her crew sleep. But sleep though lightly. It has not yet been told to me that the sea has ceased to be the sea.--Rudyard Kipling
