Personally I think everyone can get seasick if the conditions are right. Let me hold you upside in a diesel soaked bilge while we bob around on a windless day smacking back and forth. Oh, and be hungover.

You'll puke.
I did puke, After welding up the inside a diesel tank on a container ship for 12 hours,
The Kiwi crew gave me a lovely dinner after I finished, and it hardly hit the bottom and it all went over the side, I was definately green that night, Diesel fumes are not good to sniff,

The only other time I have been sea sick was on a small fishing boat in the Fraser straight, Mono, But after a couple of hours and a severe head concentration, Mind over matter, I got over it, I was not going to be sick all night,

Re: Sea Sickness Survey: Monohull vs. Multihull -- No Speculation

We did an almost 3 full night run offshore in our Bombay Clipper 31, and two days of it were in nasty Seas, The wife was thrown from wall to bunk to leecloth back to bunk wall, then repea,t for hours on end, and slept no problem on the mono. punching into a 6'-8' head sea for 22 hours on our final approach to KW, again not a huge problem. Short Choppy sea head on for 6-8 hours and she was rocking all over the place for hours once on land lol. Never once got Queasy.
On A 10 hour down wind run in somewhat confused seas on our 30' Cat and she felt pretty queasy. I will say it could of been the "Vodka Creamsicles" she was drinking the night before.
