    Done it. No good. Next time I tested something I put some pads between me and that bar.

    I had an inexpensive PFD (lifejacket) so I put the back on top of the knobs and the front portions wrap around the "keel." Padding is quite thick and it's waterproof if I forget/can't be bothered to put it away.
