It is very important, on any kind of boat, to wear appropriate footwear. Wooden shoes are very rarely appropriate.

Check out this accident report from the Danish Maritime Authority. An overweight chief engineer slightly the worse for drink, a makeshift gangway and snow on the quay may all have partly contributed to the unexpected swim by the aforementioned chief engineer. But what was he thinking? Wooden shoes?

His wooden shoes were too small!
Any self-respecting clogger knows the ratio between bodyweight and clogsize.
If done rights you can stand on water with the rights size of "KLOMPEN"
