Jimmy Buffett only causes seasickness because of the need to have a margarita while you listen to it. Listen too long (while anchored of course) and you have too many. There is the seasickness right?

The perfect Sailing Song

It has nothing to do with margaritas, his music is terrible. I never get seasick and on a passage last year I started feeling bad. I heard something down below and at the beginging of the trip I mentioned I am kool with anything except Jimmy Buffet and Phil Collins. I was on watch and on of my mates had slipped it in. I swear once it was stopped I started feeling better. On a trip I just got back on ,again the same thing happened on one of our legs. This time the whole cd played . I thought it was Buffet but the other guy was cooking so I didnt stick my head below. The wind and seas were picking up and I thought well maybe its because I havent been offshore in a while and this was our first leg. Once I went below for chow my ears started screaming and I immeadiately ran back into the cockpit and started puking my guts out like I have never before. This has happened twice so I can only come to the conclusion that Jimmy Buffet causes seasickness.-thomas

As I always say, "it would be a very boring world if we all liked the same thing."

I''m off soon for a (driving) trip down to SW Florida. Hope to get out sailing. Wishing everyone very happy holidays.

I can only take Buffett in small doses myself...usually after I''ve had a glass of wine or two also. You''re right, it''s nice that we all have different tastes...
So have a safe trip and don''t forget that "syrup"...just in case you don''t get sailing, you''ll be sure to have something else fun to do
Merry Christmas all!

A word of caution "Notice to Mariners" to all of you traveling via sailing vessel in the next two weeks "Listening to Jimmy Barffit is hazardous to your health".

Yep, Duane hit the nail with his head on this one -- to each his/her own. Or as I remind myself all the time looking at boats other people buy, "There''s no accounting for taste."

Yea, well just wait ''till Jimmy goes up (or down ''pendin'' on yer view) to visit ol'' Gerry! He''ll be a sailing martyr then and we''ll never get away from it!

Tom. If it comes up round and furry, swallow it back down! It''s yer butt hole!
