Sea Legs on Land...

OK kind of an odd question, but something I'm noticing again after a sailing weekend...

Spent last three days on the boat... Little lumpy the first day, somewhat smooth (other than boat wakes) the last two days....

And now that I'm home and sitting at the computer I'm kind of "rocking" back and forth, kind of a wave action in my chair...I noticed it last time I was back from a three day trip, and it went away in a day or so...

I haven't gotten sick on the boat and I'm not ill now...

So...just wondering if this is normal..? Or I should go see a doctor for an inner ear equilibrium problem...?

No big deal, it might last a day or so. This has happened to me many times, it will pass in a day or to. A good nights sleep helps me. Fair winds.

Happens to me all the time. Just be careful showering. The world really spins when you close your eyes.

Normal - Actually, there is a reference to this in Kevin Costner's Waterworld.

We call it "the boat is moving"!! It is a consipracy by Poseidon to make you think about sailing even when on land!!! The cure is to get back on the boat...

I've noticed it more in small areas - like showers or bathrooms. I don't spin, but the room does. We've lived on board for 15 years and it doesn't happen as often as it used to, but it still happens, and it's normal. Blame it on the rum.

Re: Sea Legs on Land...

Tiny nerve hairs in the cochlea (inner ear) are overly excited by the movement of boating.They'll get over it. Meanwhile enjoy the feeling. Some people do drugs or rum for the same effect.Meanwhile ,eyes wide, to give the brain a 'level' signal. Same as avoiding sea sickness by looking at far away.
