I would ask them if they've ever been out on a boat, and if they have, whether or not seasickness was an issue. I'd also highly recommend you give them hints on how to avoid seasickness. Avoiding greasy foods and alcohol, getting a good night's sleep, staying well hydrated, dressing warmly, taking an antihistamine, etc, all help people from getting seasick.

These can make for a much nicer trip. Also, by doing so, you can find out whether they're allergic to any of the common remedies for seasickness—ginger-based cookies, candies and soda; dramamine, bonine, peppermint, etc.

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.
