The worst thing about being seasick is knowing you are not going to die

Don’t tell this joke to the seasick. They will not laugh

As someone who easily gets seasick, I generally shy away from big offshore fishing trips. Dramamine, Bonime, patches, decongestants I’ve used them all and have still gotten sick despite a handful of Bonime prior to departure. Needless to say, seeing this headline piqued my interest.

  1. Having had many years at sea (and seasickness), I have found that if you wait to take seasickness remedies just before you head out, it’s too late. You must start taking them at 24 hours ahead of departure. Don’t know why this is but I’ve repeated this experiment many times. About the only remedy that didn’t make me feel worse than the sickness was Bonine (Meclizine HCI). Most ships I’ve worked on, usually had large quantities aboard. I guess they had already figured this out.
