Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
It's called rolling, unless you're a landlubber.
Roll, Pitch & Yaw (rotational), Heave, Surge & Sway (translational).Put'em all together and you're likely to be calling Ralph on the big white telephone.

Perpetual aches,pains and bruises.
I was on a a Coast Guard 378' cutter in the Caribbean (deployed with an HH-52A). My rack was in a large berthing area, when I slept my feet faced forward. Middle of one night I wake up and I'm tilting backwards, my feet are higher than my head, I can feel I'm going over backwards... Then I'm falling the other way, my feet are going down fast.... Boom! I can feel the hull hit the water... and everything is normal again.No alarms? Must be normal, I went back to sleep. A different way to live.
Nice pair of targets!
