Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

travelingeasy and jobberone,

WHenever you have a member (melee) like that, push the alert button. He is not contributing anything except drug indiced ramblings. It was a good discussion until then.

Re: Seasick & Singlehanding

I used to be sick for the first three days , then eat enough to make up for all three. Then I discovered transderms, then Stugeron.Leaving has got far more pleasant. Ginger works for short trips.

ANother is peppermint. Not as good as ginger, but you can buy them cheap and they are a good distraction for kids.

Thanks Brian. I didn't know about the panic button until you posted the information.

You start the sturgeron before you leave? How long do you continue with the patch - the entire voyage?

I had never experienced active seasickness (I have occasionally had short term nausia but no vomitting) until recently on a 36hr singlehanded run. I became ill about 20 hours in and remained sick for the remainder of the trip. That was pretty disconcerting - and exhausting. It is definitely an issue I'll have to address before heading out singlehanded again. I wish I had been out long enough to know whether it would have resolved itself - obviously the biggest concern is not the discomfort or even the temproary incapacity, but thee prospect that the condition worsens and becomes a significant medical crisis.

What about sour balls? Do they still make them? That was what my Dad distracted me with on headboat fishing trips as a kid. I always look for them but never see them anymore . . ..

Never tried that. Peppermint is apparently a natural nausea medicine, but apparently not as good as ginger for many. We carry a lot of sesick meds on board, but unfortunately, many are not suitable for kids. You cannot get a patch of scope (which I think works great) for kids. You can get phen which we carry. 12.5 mg tabs are appropriate, depending on age. We carried suppositories of phen for years, but they have to be refrigerated. Keep that in mind as it is an issue, depending on the boat.

ANyways, my focus is always what works for adults and kiddos. Peppermint is not a cure, only a mild fix. We also take ginger cookies if it is a long trip. I personaly do not like ginger. Makes me burp. Kids and wife do. THat is fine. You can get ginger "beer" at the Nutrition stores and other places with specializations like WHole FOods.

Diesel fumes get me. I think Gary mentioned that too. ALso, I know my limits and what seas and for how long I can take it. THat is the ultimate trick for cruising. Once you know what your threshold is, you can prepare.

Remember the adage my friend told me: Everyone gets seasick, we all just have different thresholds.

Brian

Bummer, not a pot smoker but I am a drug user, (booze). Was enjoying his posts...

Oh yea, if "drug induced ramblings" get people banned, you might want to get that "banned" button warmed up. I'm guessing many post after a few drinks...
