Erika: I too get seasick sometimes, and have tried lots of remedies. Now I never go near a boat without Bonine. One tablet is all I need and I can stay out all day. You take it about an hour before you get on the boat. It''s an over-the-counter medication, you can get it at any drugstore. I''ve never tried the armbands, but I have a friend who swears by them.
Interesting to hear you were a scuba instructor. I''m a divemaster right now, trying to decide whether to "bite the bullet" and get my instructor certification. It''s either that or starting up a pet-sitting service. I need a part-time job right now to beef up the kitty.
I really do want to live aboard someday. Considering I got a $300 utility bill yesterday (up from $100 the month before), it sounds better and better every day.
Wish we all lived close enough to get together for coffee!
