Ginger root works very good. A small bite works instantly and lasts for about 15min.

Dont go fishing, leave them for me. I'll drop the fillets off at your house he he he.

Junior still throws a single puke everytime we go to sea. He starts out chirpy, quietens down and then you know its coming. Throws some chum and 5 minutes after he's back and 100% for the rest of the day.

I reckon a lot of it is in your mind. I'm completely out of my mind and have never been sick once.
Proof enough for me...

Hey Hammers , I recon youre right. This condition comes from sniffing all those wonderful fumes generated when mixing GRP, not to mention the acetone used for cleaning your tools.
Ive been through the same process and have also never been sick.

Could be. Somehow don't think the world health ord is going to accept our anti seasick treatment spa.

Steam room with resin and glatex 8 vapour. Mixed in with a bit of genkem will set the hurlers straight...

Thank goodness it is almost beer o clock.

It did/ does.
The strange thing with Stugeron and others it is seems to dehydrate him fast.
So if he doesn't remember to drink on the way out he sort of overheats, hurls and then starts drinking and he is ok.

I know it sounds strange but you often forget to drink and eat until you realise you starving. There's always so much to do. Bait cutting, spotting for birds etc.

So whilst he still has the one hurl, it is way better than what it used to be. Before the stugeron, there were days when he was really sick. Worst case now is it's about an hour or so of feeling green and then the moment arrives and as I said, 5 minutes later he's back on track.

I know this happens to a few guys. They hurl once and as soon as it's out the way they are 100% ok.

I have the same problem , shoot a quick cat while fishing and sometimes on top of a fish but not that sick so I dont fish.I will pay R200 for a pil that sorts it out.I would enjoy boat fishing more.Funny with me its not a rough sea that gets me , more a big sea.Early this year we were fishing for YT off SW reefs , sea was flat but some biggeisg swells coming through , and I was feeling sh!t.Later inside the bay the sea was rough ( wind came up ) and I am 100% fine.

I envy you guys that dont get sick as I would be on the sea every weekend if is wasnt for that.

I am sure you didn't really mean to say that it is mind over matter, cos I can promise you it is not. I get so sick can not continue fishing.

I don't know. It's just when I watch guys, kids and the ladies get themselves all worked up the night before and on the boat in the morning, they often get sick. Then you spring a lets go now, right now and you go launch and there's no getting sick. I figure they haven't had time to think about it and so there's no jitters or all night "will I catch the monster tomorrow"

I'm convinced that it has something to do with it.

Absolutely no doubt that Sea sickness is related to anxiety. I've lost count of how many Rookie Scuba divers have had a solid chunda on the boat before they dive. But 10-15 dives later, they mysteriously forget their seasickness...???

hi.

i used to get real sick out there, it used to take ten minutes tops and i would never recover till we got back. i started taking a supository called 'voloid'. one supository one hour before you hit the water, works like a charm.

for the real weak guys like me take one before going to bed at night and one one hour before you hit the water.

guaranteed

Yip valoid, But i drink the pills, when u get up to go fishing the morning. No drinkie the night before.

Even then i'm like hammer's son, one upchuck session, and then i need about 30 minutes to recuperate, and then it's finished till we go again tomorrow. Also found that you need to remember to eat. After the upchuck session, i always eat very salty tomatoe sandwiches. Settles the lot quickly.

I'm like Klipvis - The ruff sea doesnt do nothing, its those swells and I feel so "naar" I cant do antything, I even wish I could rather die.

But next time I'll try the Stugeron, the ginger root and   the valoid.  

One of those should help if not all 3.

And I can tell u guys that its not all in the mind, I didnt even think of getting sick, it just started as we stopped the engines.

And like Skrops, I used to get sick on a swing as a child!

I get sea sick on my ski if I look down. I have to keep my head up. It becomes a bit difficult feeling around inside the hatch, while trying to keep my head up, but it wroks for me.

Motion sickness happens when the body, inner ear, and eyes all send different signals to the brain, resulting in confusion and queasiness. It is a problem generally attributed to disturbance in the balance system of the inner ear (vestibular) system. Your sensory perception gets out of synch as these nerve fibers attempt to compensate for the unfamiliar motion of the ship moving through water.

The movement of a boat on a fluid sea creates stress in the portions of the brain responsible for balance. Perhaps that stress causes the brain to start malfunctioning as the land based environment it understands is suddenly not behaving as it should.

The visual stimulus is misleading as it reports things like cabin walls, and furniture, in such a way that the brain interprets these things as stable when they're not. Your brain is being told by the vision system that the world is stable, while the inner ear is screaming that it's not.

The good news for sufferers is that the condition often disappears without medical treatment within a few days. As your brain learns to compensate for the swaying and pitching of the boat you will get your “sea legs”.

One unfortunate aspect is that after a prolonged period at sea it may take a while for you to adjust to being on terra firma again.
