Reminds me on our first offshore passage, with my wife. As a captain, I got seasick (like throwing the dinner overboard). I had to be very discreet, so my wife would not freak out, particularly she was seasick as well!!

I can't imagine the moral of the crew on Rule 62 if the captain was seasick and stuck in his bunk
