Re: Do you personally get seasick?

I've never been sick on a sailboat but I've come close on large power boats in heavy swells. Like Brian, I have trouble when I get back to land, fell over in the shower at Ganges Hbr one time :-)) I think I would have been in trouble on a tuna fishing trip in 20+' seas (42' charter boat) if it weren't for Scop, out of 10 people I was the only one that didn't get sick but I didn't feel great. IIRC Vega? (SV Lealea) here on SN had a bad trip from Hawaii to Seattle, sick for a couple of weeks, maybe he'll jump on here with some info. I think I read that he's heading back to HI so he must have figured something out to help with it.
