It doesn't matter what boat you're in - if the conditions are right, you're gonna puke. And eventually, you'll get over it. "Motion comfort", at least as framed in these debates, is a very squishy concept.
I don't know ...maybe. I never puked in a boat. I am not a puke guy but unfortunately I know what make my wife and my kids (not kids anymore) Puke: it is when I am having fun

It is horrible to have a big grin and enjoying the ride and then have to make a sorrow face when I ask to my wife: are you better?

It is not fun also to take some sail and speed out and open the upwind course to give her a softer ride. That's life: we wave to compromise and that's a pity.

Now what are you saying about sea motion comfort? It is the motion of a sailboat when I am not having fun? Give me the fun and have the soft motion to yourself and to all Puke guys and girls

regards

Paulo
