Seems like a few recent members have sent their bad karma my way...
Last time I went out on patrol at sea I felt so seasick we had to return to shore. First time in my life I've suffered and it was horrible. Ok, I want to make it clear right now I didn't chuck (too tight for that, don't agree in waste) but I felt pretty bad and the only thing that made me feel better was to actually control the boat, all 300hp of it! Ok, the sea wasn't great, 4m+ swell, 15knot winds and we were 11NM offshore so couldn't see land but that's the norm for me.
Now, a week before I was ill for 4 days (ate a cray that didn't taste right but still couldn't resist it!). Then the night before we went out I ate 2lb of fresh mussels in white wine and cream, bloody nice but I reckon it was the bug/rich food that made me bad (and poor karma for being rude, ignorant and naive). I've worked on boats for 14 years now on the North Sea, big reservoirs and now the Southern Ocean and that's the first time I've felt crap. I even took a kwells that morning (unusual for me) coz I new it would be a bit lumpy.
So anyone got anytips on cures for seasickness. I hope I don't need them, just wondered what others do. I suppose I could ask my bosses if I could stick to Fresh water ;)
I hope I never have to shout for Ralph when out on the water :)
