BBC News just did a short puff piece on her. Showed how comfy her cot is on the boat and the interview showed she clearly has no idea what she's in for on that lil boat ride.

I had a sea sickness story from hell story. Went tuna fishing on a buddies 24 footer off the coast of MA. As we went out of Newburyport and hit the Atlantic, the waves were 4-5 feet high and cresting over the bow of the boat. I literally made it 5 minutes and was puking overboard but thought I could power thru it. Once out on the open water, the waves started to subside but we were still dealing with 2-3 foot waves and I was dry heaving every 15-20 minutes. The fishing was incredible. My buddies caught 5 blue fin tuna ranging from 60-75 inches and probably 50 40 inch and up Stripers. I didn't have the strength to hold a rod and was barely able to take pictures of my friends enjoying the greatest fishing day of their lives. I stuck it out for 6 hours and literally took 4-5 days before I could enjoy a real meal and still can't go out on the ocean. I get sick even on calm 1-2 foot seas. Now I stick to fresh water fishing...Once you get seasickness, you can't get rid of it until you get to shore. It will come and go but will always come back...I can't imagine being out of the ocean for a minimum of 14 days...

Oh it goes away, eventually. But you'll probably wish you were dead first.

I used to keep a couple of the little "watch" style bands on my boat. They work sort of like a "tens" unit but on the wrist (you wear it on the BOTTOM) and it sends a very small electrical discharge into the nerves there. For reasons I don't think is too well understood it disrupts the vestibular signal that causes seasickness. For a HUGE percentage of the people it works -- but there are a few people for whom it doesn't. Notably it is the ONLY thing that works once you're ALREADY feeling seasick (e.g. Dramamine will do NOTHING if taken after you're already green; you HAVE TO take it before getting on board.)

There have only been two times I've gotten the hurlies at sea. One was on a sailboat in EXTRAORDINARILY rough conditions. The other was when I had to go below in my 45'er to deal with a fuel filter problem offshore in 8-10' seas. Inhaling diesel fumes + no ability to see the horizon + 110 degree temps = hurled into the aft bilge; the pump dutifully ejected it overboard. smiley
