  1. Yes, I will try this. We virtually spent a week on the boat with very little off the boat time, which was nice, but not doing me any favours x
  2. That’s a good thought! This is something we will look into once back to home mooring it’s going in for blacking in a few weeks, so will enquire about the ballast whilst it’s out of water! It’s day two now and I’m still suffering. Admittedly not as bad while I’m walking around, but as soon as I sit down, or stand still it’s off again.
  3. Thanks. Planning a run after work. Got to be worth a go or my narrowboating days could be over very quickly 😞
  4. I hope so. Still feeling a little wobbly this morning, but hoping it wears off after a day at work
  5. No need to apologise, it might me helpful in this case for me to also “jog” to the nearest off license we’re returning to the boat at the weekend to continue our journey, but this disturbance is quietly putting me off. I didn’t have much time off the boat, only to fill up the water & diesel tanks, to which I thought the office where I paid was floating on water to my amusement at the time, I thought it would be short lived and a “one off” and saw the funny side, till I’ve come back to reality and it’s ugly head has followed me. Hoping for some relief after a good sleep.
  6. Thanks. Yeah, I think it’s the simple motion, I think it must affect everyone differently no matter how subtle. Strange phenomena isn’t it, laying down and sitting still makes it worse. Hoping for a better day tomorrow.
  7. Thank you very much for your reply. I must admit I’ve struggled today being unsteady on my feet hence not had the motivation to get out, but if it still persists tomorrow, I will have a good few mile walk/jog and see if that makes the difference. All the best.
  8. Thanks for your reply. It’s very interesting that it does get less the more time you spend afloat, this is very positive news. It’s still all new to me but this is one thing that I didn’t expect, so has taken me by surprise. It seems like a common thing to happen, so gives me comfort.
  9. Omg I already have this lol.
  10. That’s good to hear! Yes, it’s so strange. I went to do a food shop this afternoon and it felt like the supermarket was on water. Hoping to wake up tomorrow and it’s eased.
  11. I hope it subsides for me too. I guess only time will tell 🙂
  12. Hi all, so we’ve just come home after our first week on our new nb. I adjusted really well to being on the water, however, now I am home, every time I sit or lie down, I feel like I’m swaying & bobbing - not a nice feeling. I’m really hoping it subsides as this might be the breaking of my new found love of the water. Anyone else suffer? I’ve read horror stories of people having it permanently, but quickly stopped reading
  13. Naughty naughty 🤣
  14. Not the best photo of the switch. It seems to be working again this morning. It’s definitely something I will take a look at when I get the boat home.
  15. Yay- so can I now I know it’s working, I probably wouldn’t have slept 🤪 The water that I couldn’t pump out was what went into the shower tray (on my boat) before I managed to get in the shower because the pump didn’t want to work, so I pissed about for 2 hours trying to figure it out, which is now working and luckily I’ve had a “boat shower” now. I hope that helps to clear up the confusion 😃
