BTW, most people adjust to the motion of the boat in 24-72 hours of being on-board. If you're planning on going on a longer cruise, it may well be worth staying aboard, even at the dock or mooring, for a day or two prior to leaving, just to allow your body to adjust/acclimatize itself.

As a word of warning, if you've been on a boat for a significant period of time, returning to dry land can also result is something much like seasickness, as your body adjusts to being on a non-moving surface. Usually takes about two weeks of being on-board continuously before this happens, but it isn't all that unusual.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
