Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

My understanding of OTC drugs for seasickness is you need to take them a day or two before you embark on a trip so you can acclimate & not feel like doing a 24 hour sleep fest.

I've never been seasick but have come close a couple of times out in the canyons fishing, (we'd stay the night) when spending too much time in the cabin. Once I got back in the cockpit, I snapped out of it.

I can't imagine spending a couple of days feeling like that & having to "run" the boat.
