Lightbulb Ultimate Sea sickness Eliminator

Here is a ship that won't roll in High seas, its kind of large though.

The higher ends of the Beaufort scale might give that invention a run for its money.

Re: Ultimate Sea sickness eliminator

Passive or active stabilizing tanks are not new. It's much cheaper than stabilizing fins and much more effective at low speed. A few years ago, I ran sea trials on an amphibious ship fitted with such a U-tank. When activated, it reduced the roll by one third. It could be appreciable for the troops aboard.

Some people just can't be helped. Someone WILL vomit.
