Living on the edge or in my case a shelf

As I'm JUST crew on this trip I have to sleep in the crews quarters, a small broom cupboard at the front of the boat with 2 bunks, one above the other, I've been kind to Frans as he is a little bigger than me, and let him have the lower bunk. this means I'm on the upper bunk, which resembles a shelf with a mattress on it. It was comfortable up until we started going south, and we tacked, instead of rolling into the wall, I now roll towards the edge, the only thing holding me in is the lee cloth, and as soon as i try and get out of my bunk, I'm catapulted at the far wall (luckily as it is a broom cupboard that is not far), and slide down to the floor.
