CaptainForce After longterm cruising these effects are more likely to dimenish. My wife and I have been living aboard for 38 years and our current time "out" began in 2002. We leave the boat at times for a few days ashore, but those types of responses posted above don't happen for us. It does sound exciting though. Maybe we're missing a thrill!

sww914 I haven't cruised yet but I lived aboard for a couple years on a mooring. I haven't slept well on land since. It's been 10 years. I need another boat.

I've never been seasick but I have (no kidding) been land sick twice...

oceangirl I think singlehanders have a harder time adjusting because sleep is such an issue. I remember waking up startled just because I had slept longer than the alotted time, this would go on for days.
I live aboard now and sleeping on land makes for a bad night, too quiet and still, I don't know how those land dwellers do it .

sailingdog Well, technically, your bed was aground... at least if you live in a terrestrial home.

That's called sea-legs; and it's the opposite of being seasick. Your body adjusted to the motion of the boat to help your perceived environment feel and appear more stable; and once ashore that compensation is still working but the earth does not move as the boat did.

Or just walking up the walkway to the shower

SailKing1 I always found it difficult to get used to noise again after being on the ocean for days. Especially if you are going through an airport to get back home.

fullkeel7 After a 12 day passage, I never knew that concrete could move soooo much! That lasted for 3 days...the plane ride home from St. Thomas was worse...talk about lavatory claustrophobia

Mipcar After the first time I did 3 continuous days staying on the boat it felt strange being on land where nothing was moving. I'd get sudden vertigo attacks.
