SailorMitch will become famous soon enough


You mean to tell me now that you had some Motion Ease aboard your beautiful Sabre and didn''t offer me any? Now I am glad I barfed on your waxed topsides! That was a strange day, though. My Chesapeake middle ear didn''t like that Lake Michigan swell -- guess it''s that 390 mile fetch out of the north? At least the next day I was well for the 11 hours of motoring across the lake in the dead calm.

But that trip did produce one of my all time sailing highlights -- that return sail home with the asymm up for hours, and the miles ticking away under the keel. That day was AWESOME!

Maybe next time I''ll try those wrist bands that cost $20 and have about 49 cents of spandex and thumb tacks in them to apply pressure to "just the right spot". Those supposedly work like acupuncture, to get this back to the original question.
