Thorough analytical observations.

Sounds like you're a good candidate for medical marijuana--its got great anti-emetic properties.

Re: Sea Sickness - Best Preventions

I found Avomine worked very effectively for me. It can make you drowsy and its a preventative rather than a cure. So i take it at night, starting 1 day before leaving. I sleep well and wake up without any drowsiness and so far, no motion sickness.
