Default Sea Sick.....Relief Band

I have the Relief bands (replaceable battery type and bought two "kits" extra battery and contact gel). The reason I made the purchase is last spring I was invited to go on a charter trip. On the boat was a father/son and we pushed out the inlet into a 5-6' short duration swell. VERY soon the son was getting green and a short time later being a compastionate kind of guy I opened up a bag of Doritos and started munching in front of the yound man (really, it was an unconcious thing). Well, his gills got really green! Just about that time his father appears and pulls out this watch. He puts the gel on son's wrist, straps on the device and they fire it up to '5' (maximum setting). About 15 minutes later the kid is asking me for a handfull of Doritos. I bought two for my boat the next day. So far the bands are 4 for 5 on non-boat broken guests. They work. PW

I ordered the "kit" including the Relief Band with replaceable battery, one that is disposable, the gel for $91.95. No tax and no shipping charge (if you're not in their state Arizona?) they're at www.crewgear.net

These things REALLY work. My wife gets seasick in the bath let alone on a boat. She has tried everything known to man, as well as some other stuff !!!! Got her a band, went out of Southport, NC this past Sunday a really rough day. She almost got sick 1 time when she went below to the head ( told her not to do that ) came bavk up and turned the band up to 5, withen 10 min she was fine. Love that thing, may have a boat partner more offten.

Ok, I tried the Vita Motion-S spray, and it worked. So so far, it's one for one. I was just starting to get a bit quezzy feeling in the ocean, after about 1/2 hour. Took a few blasts of the stuff, and I forgot all about it and realized when I got home, it must have worked.

So far so good!! It's going to take a lot of testing for me though, cuase I don't get sick very often (about 1 out of 6 or 8 runs maybe). Also, it doesn't always last, so I'm not positive it was the "stuff": that worked?

Anywho

Got the band for my wife, who gets seasick when I remove the dock lines. It works really well for her, with one side-effect:

Whenever she touches something metal, she gets a mild shock. Nothing serious, it just completes the circuit through her finger. She'd still rather get shocked occasionally than be seasick all the time.

With all this talk of rough seas I thought I would put this info out to the board. Went out last weekend with GS and Sneaky. Left at 4:00 am from Albany and had nothing but a cup of coffee before getting on the boat. I believe the sea were all of 3-5' that day. I wasnt feeling real chipper but fearing the possibilities of being deposited on O tower I sucked it up. I remembered I had the Electric sea band I had purchased for my youngest son in my dry bag. I figured what the heck, good chance to test it. Within 30 minutes I was as chipper as could be! I was very impressed with the little device. Sneaky was skeptical but I'm tellin' ya it positively worked for me!

If you, as the Captain get sick, try drinking beer. Lots of it.

If your guests start getting sick, try this one:

Rub a fried chicken leg (cold, very important) on their forehead.

Then, have them hold two peeled hardboiled eggs (cold, very important), in their armpits.

After the eggs warm up, have them muck them on down.

This will do the trick. If they still feel nausea, let them eat the chicken leg.

Never offer a guest your beer. You'll need that for the ride back.

My Dad taught me these tricks off of Islamorada in the 70s.

Good luck, Mark.

MarkA,

Are you sure this isn't an easy recipe for chumming?

I need serious help with this.

My wife gets seasick looking at the water. But the problem gets a little more complicated because she cannot wear a watch. There is something about an electrical charge between her body and the watch that will cause the watch to run fast or slow. Her grandmother was the same way. The wrist acupuncture band did not work for her either.

So has anyone had a similar problem, used this band and had some modicum of success with it.

James.
