Interesting, but why would anyone sleep better at sea than anywhere else (such as a cabin in the mountains or something?) Low grade sea sickness? That's usually what knocks people out on boats.

Nights: 3 on 3 off, days are float. I sleep like a baby when done and usually sleep very well when off watch unless the guy blows or some such and then your on deck to help sort it out. Who sleeps in their gear?

I've always slept better on a boat at anchor then on terra firma, but I have a hell of a time sleeping while underway, i usually just "rest" not actually sleep.

When we anchor I throw a gps right above my head with an anchor alarm on, so I sleep pretty soundly even through storms, but I'm up like a shot if it starts beeping

Nope.....she's never been sea-sick for a minute. She reads about 4-6 books a week while at sea, even down below. If I read down below....I'm sick. She loves cooking at sea. If we are hammering to windward in big seas, she just harnesses herself in. She thinks it's fun .......go figure.

If I wake her up in the middle of the night, she can rarely go back to sleep. That's why I just let her sleep.

Her idea of a goodtime is, sitting on the aft deck...with a 5' Mahi-Mahi in front of her and filet knife in her hand. She'd filet that thing in 10 minutes. I'd wash her down with the deck wash pump. She'd head down below and start canning that thing.

Sea-sick............I don't think so.

I think I sleep better on anchor then on shore because of the "cradle" like rocking LOL, at least that's always been my theory. I guess i would sleep better while underway if I hadn't been awaken by "OH SH**" so many times j/k

Unless it was very rolly I almost always slept well at anchor AFTER we got an anchor alarm. Also, we got used to wind generator noise and had trouble falling asleep on land without it. I guess most of our ‘sheltered’ anchorages turned out to be pretty windy.

The Canadian Sleep Society (CSS) / Société Canadienne du Sommeil (SCS) is a professional association of clinicians, scientists and technologists formed in June 1986 to further the advancement and understanding of sleep and its disorders through scientific study and public awareness. They have lots of interesting information (& links) about sleep.
