Re: Do you personally get seasick?

Yep. I get seasick pretty easily. Puke over the side, and then keep right on doing whatever I was doing before. That's the good news for me. Even though I get sick it doesn't really debilitate me. I just have to be sure to be up on deck, or have a bucket handy, to avoid a nasty clean-up job later.

Typically lasts a couple of days for me. If yours lasts for months at a time I would agree with Minnewaska and say that you need to eliminate the possibility of inner ear problems. Then, the other question I would have is, on the inside passage trip, was it maybe a case of a bit of roughness (and getting seasick) followed by calm days (where you felt well) and then more roughness (where you were actually getting seasick AGAIN, rather than just continuing the previous seasickness)?
