    Well, I've picked up some Kwells so I'll try them out over the weekend to make sure there are no side effects.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    I have almost never had any problem on liveaboards; they're generally too big to cause guests problems. I have seen people suffer, though not many. I tend to believe that (at least for liveaboards), if you think you're going to suffer you probably will.

    On the other hand, the meds don't take up much space or wieght so why not take them. Personally I would hold off on taking them until you realise you're one of the few who suffers.

    The boat itself has a bearing on this, and conditions. For example, Hurricane is a steel hulled boat, almost impossible to be sea sick on it, except when the wind is behind the boat during a passage and blowing diesel fumes back onto the sun decks. Whirlwind is wooden hulled and rolls like a bastard in rough seas. If you're lucky, you're on a nice stable boat.

    Can't see that working.


    There are four varieties in society: the lovers, the ambitious, observers and fools. The fools are the happiest.
    Hippolyte Taine French critic and historian (1828-93)
