It's not a joke. It really worked for me and I have not been seasick 37 years now.

I would hate the thought of going to sea always with drugs, and forgetting 1 pill and getting sick etc.

People laugh at the alcohol method but if it works....?

Ok, I'll bite. What is your alcohol method?

I think I tried it once. A 32 oz margarita and hot wings the night before. Didn't help. Just made things...colorful.

In any case, I wouldn't have had alcohol on a delivery trip.

I'm sure the ship's medic would have some for 'medicinal' purposes...

But all kidding aside, what did you try? Ginger, patches, etc. I'm sure Dave had something along...

Glad everybody made it safely.

Re: S/V Magic going south

Donna, don't feel like the Lone Ranger with seasickness. I spent 4 years aboard a 761 foot heavy cruiser in the US Navy and never had a cruise where I didn't puke my guts out. Never been seasick a day since I got out of the Navy. Just doesn't effect me on smaller boats. Weird!

Glad you made it back safely and hopefully, you can find a solution to your seasickness problem.

All the best,

Gary

I'm not sure that anything worked. I know I drank more commercial Ginger Ale on this trip than I have in decades (I don't typically drink soda) but that may have been my body craving some kind of sugar. I make my own ginger syrup at home so I may experiment with that in my Soda Stream on our boat.

Re: S/V Magic going south

Donna, if I can get healthy enough, I hope to make the Delmarva Loop this spring. It would be a good trip for you and John as well, if for no other reason, to test your sea legs and hopefully, thwart the seasickness problems with a remedy that won't make you sleepy or groggy. Margarettas are good for a lot of ailments, but I have to stay on the wagon for a while longer until I get a better handle on my health situation.

Give my best to John,

Gary

Is that really it? Sounds like it was invented in a fraternity.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

It's standard cruising fare for Chesapeake Bay day cruisers.
