captbillc is on a distinguished road
i was sailing with a friend on his 40ft steel ketch. we were rolling & i was leaning back and watching the sails for a long time. when i got home & got out of the car i took a half dozen steps & fell flat on my face. i called my doctor and he examined me. it was caused by sediment in the semicircular ear canals & not a heart attack which caused me to lose my balance. they did some head positioning exercises which eliminated the problem. this was about 10 years ago.
