As you know, 707cmf is currently on a cruise in the Irish sea in mid-november weather  Big grin and probably feeding the fish from the deck at this time.

Are you sick while at sea ?

I'm not but I get bored as a dead rat.

I HATE water, I do get very sea sick if its rough seas. I only ever go on a ship/boat if its absolutely nessasary.

I do - it is a secret shame ! I'm fine on big planes, but in very small planes and on ships, I get seriously bulimic. On any kind of sea voyage, except in the Med (no waves) it is a given that I will toss my cookies at some point. I just get on with it, it's inevitable anyway, so get it over with and moveon.org. I always feel much better afterwards. I once spent 9 hours of a 10 hour evening crossing between Plymouth and Roscoff, wedged in a corner out on deck in a howling gale, soaking wet, just so I could be outside and look at the horizon (that helps, btw) - I was never so happy to see France in my life !

Don't mind rough seas at all, prefer hitting the waves straight on though because it's easier to walk if your not going from side to side all the time! I think the worst crossing I've been on was from Plymouth to Roscoff, 10ft (20ft) waves hitting us side on and a force 8-9 gale just to top it all off.

Nice weather for ducks  Big grin

Bulbous ?! I'm young and beautiful and thin and gorgeous, I'll have you know. I am cursed with a finely tuned sense of balance, and so anything unbalanced (such as yourself, Kirk !) causes me accute intestinal distress. It's is the price one pays for being so damn fabulous, I guess.

Nelson suffered from seasickness, so I suppose there's hope.

Still, any Briton that pukes on a ship or a boat has to be slightly suspect. Island people and all that.  Big grin

But you'll notice now that all the ferries departing Pudding Island for Civilisation are now all owned by European companies (Stena, Britanny Ferries etc) - we can cut you off any time we like bwwuuAAHHAHA ! So watch it, moosh.

I'll probably never get seasick, but that's the only good thing a vestibular disorder (or a hearing impairment) comes with.

Er. Stena Line on the Dover-Calais run was effectively absorbed by P & O. And the Dover-Calais one is the most important by miles.

You'll note we also hedged our bets with the airports though.  Big grin

Yes, but don't worry, it's sorted - we can always have the French farmers and truckers to block it in protest - happens all the time  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Besides, we need the tunnel to send all our illegal immigrants through to England.

Banco - re the airports - we have our secret weapon for that too. French ATC. You might be able to get to Europe, but it will take a VERY long time (provided they're not on strike !).

The only time I get sick when I sail is after I have been drinking. And I love to sail. Especially on long distances. I feel so free on a ferry all alone in the middle of the ocean. Big grin

He got over it though. Seems that with having only one arm, it was too difficult to hang on to the railing and puke.  Wink/being sarcastic

Na, I don't get sick while on the water.

Then again the only time I am on the water is when I'm cruising and the ship is 90,000 T, stabilizers blah blah blah....

Funny, there are some people that get very sick, even on those monster ships.

Take a Ginger pill and shut up !!

Come now, Banco - the UK loves immigrants, you get to mock them on TV and co-opt their cuisine as your own, all part of the rich multi-cultural fabric of the UK. Blimey, you let Kirkie stay, so your standards can't be THAT high  Laugh out loud
