    Re: Simulating platform instability on land?

    "I saw long dining tables (no legs) hinged to the bulkhead. The inboard ends
    were suspended from overhead lines. (Not familiar with the proper
    nautical term for that particular rope.) As a ship in those days would
    most likely stay one one tack for a good many days, the lines were
    adjusted to keep the tables level on that tack." -Bill B

    Like in the attached picture?
