Wheels, my sentiments exactly. I had one occasion that made an important point (to me anyway). I am one to resist the urge to vomit. As I mentioned before, I react badly to alcahol on the water. We were out one day with some friends aboard. Thier kid was over the rail almost from the dock. After about an hour, she calmed down enough that my wife could take a break (she was helping hold the kid's hair back). My wife enjoys a shot of rum in her tea, and when she went below, she called up, and asked if I wanted tea. Sounded good to me, so she brought up a cup. I took a solid slug of the tea, and lasted about 60 seconds before I started to get nauseus. Another minute, and I had no choice. I was over the rail. After that, I felt great. I was not sick again.
Oh, and my wife no longer puts rum in my tea without asking

Sea sick? What's that?

I must have an iron gut. No wonder they use to send me down in the hot engine room during the rough weather. I use to come up and discrbe to the mates all that oily sludge slopping back and forth in the bilges. Then head for the chow hall for some beef stew.

Aboard ship, I use to think is was fun when the weather got rough. I got in trouble a couple of times for going out on deck during the storms.

Hey delmarrey.

Were you in the Navy. Or the Merchant Marines?

In the Navy

I spent most of the 4 years in the S. China Sea and S. Pacific as well as transPac's to S.F. , Ca.

Still trying to get back. It takes $$$

It must be in the blood! My father was a Merchant Marine for 30 years, homeport out of Seattle.

Delmarrey, I am fine under those conditions. I can even handle going below decks and doing some cooking. This is when I have trouble http://cruisersforum.com/photopost//...php?photo=1605

I spent 9 years in the US Navy. All of it doing Med cruises. And spent 2 years of that 9 years in Florida for shore duty.

Yeah! they wanted to put me on shore duty in Sandy Eggo if I re-up'ed. I said "No Way" .

Pete has a Quote "Those who wonder are not always lost" or some thing like that. Anyway, I've been traving my whole life, Thanks to Dad, and getting stuck in one place is not my forte'.

I've been here in Seattle longer then anywhere else in my life. Probably due to that I have roots here as well as all the boat stuff. But I won't be staying too much longer................................._/)
