The only way to shut them up - I drank the regurgitated remains in my coffee cup after five minutes of listening to the jives....that shut them up (two left station because they couldn't handle it) and from that moment forward - never again got queasy or sick at sea ...sometimes it can be more mental than physical I guess...


Another technique that works is putting a band aide or taping a cottonball right below the ear...it puts pressure on the nerves that are related to balance from the ear and helps some maintain ....

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.
