Re: Boats that seasick SoCal spouses could love

If she doesn't like the quick motion of a cat, try a few rides on friends Mono's. Look for high "motion comfort" ratings. My wife hates the ride of light flat bottom boats. She does fine on slower motion boats.

Re: Boats that seasick SoCal spouses could love

My Bristol has a very high motion comfort rating, in fact that was a major motivation for buying it, even though it's only 31ft. This is due to the hull design - an absence of flat sections aft, moderate beam, and a fairly round hull cross-section mean that it really rides smoothly under sail in a chop. The downside is that, under power, motion is somewhat under-damped which can be nauseating.

So I would look for larger, older boats with high comfort ratings. Anything by Ted Hood ! Bristol 45.5?

Re: Boats that seasick SoCal spouses could love

Good health through drugs is my plan...:big grin:

30 mins before casting lines.... 1 Sturgeon

As we cast lines... another Sturgeon.

We leave port and all crew but me and GF fall asleep... lasts about 2 hours.

Most novices do fine thereafter.... for those who become sick, I reserve a big surprise... I shove the suppository up their arse. Luckily, I've not had to do that yet!

Selecting the right boat could make a VERY BIG difference.
