Must of been the last of the wooden hulled ones. I only remember Buccaneers, Gannetts, Seavixens and Sopwith pups. My seasickness probably around the same time as Riks mum was suffering from morning sickness. Mmm sobering thought :drinking:

I knew that in the past some of my Rally co drivers used to get it when looking down at the map or notes.

I always found that it was more of a symptom of the drivers use of the controls.

The worst was a guy with a new Company Mitsubishi and his family started getting 'CAR SICK' when going out in it.
Within a few minutes of setting off it was easy to see why.
He constantly 'pulsed' the accelerator pedal in 'auto' And see-sawed at the wheel.

Basically then 'Motion sickness'

When I served as a Aircraft Mechanic on the old Ark Royal it used to corkscrew* in heavy seas and many suffered.
Sea Sickness [or Motion sickness]
*[ The bow used to go up and down and round and round in a counterclockwise direction all at the same time. It was a known stability fault]


Hello sailor! The Hermes used to do the same :vomit:


Those big container ships and pure car carriers all do much the same thing. It's called parametric rolling and it's caused by the pitching motion changing the transverse stability and hence causing rolling.

OOOOH CHEEKY BOY :nono:

Yes Gannets and Sea vixens too. We could not fly at night as the angle of attack meant the lights could not be seen properly.

Indeed it did! I have to say thought that a Ley Class mine hunter could do 15 degree rolls, inside the breakwater! On the latter is wasn't a case of motion sickness, more terror :)
