Check out the sea-sickness advice on other threads here. The general consensus is, you need to PREVENT seasickness not try to do something about it after you start feeling bad. You will quickly learn what your very early signals for seasickness are, and using these you can prevent major seasickness. Some things to try in increasing order of seriousness are: crystalizeed ginger (stick a wad in your cheek and suck on it), any of the antihistamine type medicines (if they don't make you pass out like me), meclazine as mentioned before, scopalmine patch (have to start taking it 24hrs ahead, or in extreme cases, and if you have a doctor friend, get a prescription for an anti-nausea medicine that is used for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. I am not going to mention the name here, it is very serious stuff and needs to be talked about with a doctor if you are that susceptible to seasickness.
Again, you have to be taking these as preventative measures, not after you are already sick. Further, don't expect to be able to do charting in rough seas just because you are chewing ginger YOU WILL GET SICK
