Re: Do you personally get seasick?

There are only two types of mariners. Those who have gotten seasick and those who will.

As a fairly general rule, seasickness will only last about 3 days in open water, so your 12 day experience would either be illness or very unusual. Getting seasick walking a dock is a new one to me. Have you seen a doc to be sure you don't have anything wrong with your inner ear or suffer from vertigo?

Sometimes, its a simple as getting familiar with things. I'm a big believer that anxiety is a strong contributor. Once you start worrying about your propensity to get seasick, it makes it even worse.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
