Who Goes Beeuuuhhharrrrgghhhh On A Ship/boat?

Fri Nov 12, 2004 9:18 pm

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 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.

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.

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 !).

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.

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

Don't worry Banco, you're in no danger of a French invasion. I work with many French people who've been to the UK once, for a laugh. Like Brits going to Disneyworld, it's a quaint place to visit once, but you couldn't possibly live there  Laugh out loud

Banco, I think it was a headline of The Times that read "Europe cut off from Britain by storm" or similar. Do you still have a copy of that issue?

I came across either a blog or a letter to the editors written by a young German woman who actually took the headline seriously and considered it a symbol of the strange attitude and smugness of you Britons.

It's not that I generally disagree, but it's certainly the wrong example.  Big grin

Any measures that can be taken to keep those awful Froggies in France should be. Stop all the ferries, seal up the tunnel I really don't care. As far as I'm concerned they should take a big jig saw to France, float it into the Atlantic and use it for target practice.

Rant over, watch out Italy, your turn next week.

I spent 5 1/2 months out to sea during the summer to fall of 2004. Only once, I felt seasick only once throughout cruise and puked from the side of the ship. This was around the Japan/Guam area during typhoon season and had two monsterious typhoon within our area so for a week, we had very rough seas, swells over 25ft, gusty winds, and we were rocking left to right constantly. After that, I got used to it really quick. Fun!

After I finished school, I worked for a few weeks on a converted sailing freighter in the Baltic, the Ewer "Petrine" (she was built in 1904, one of the first of it´s kind made of steel, a flat bottomed ship of about 36 meters total with two masts and side boards used back then for supplying farming communities on the islands in the North Sea and Baltic. Due to her having no keel she could be beached at low tide, so that the farmers could come out with horse carriages to load and unload the goods, back then bricks, fertilizer and timber to the islands and farm produce back to Hamburg etc.. This ship got a Danish Alpha diesel auxilary engine installed in 1936, 100 HP at 300 RPM out of two cylinders!). I was taking care of the engine and doing general deckshand work. The owner had the ship converted for cruises by installing cabins and a big mess in the former cargo hold.

Funny thing was, we got some wind one day causing some swell. The skipper, his girlfriend and myself were the only ones who could stay below deck without getting sick.

If you can take light to moderate chop on an airliner...
...the rough water should be nothing to deal with. It's a very slow motion.

I would beg to differ. I have no problem whatsover with even long periods of turbulence on an airliner, but the motion on a ship is much worse, because you don't necessarily detect and compensate for it. Only your inner ear senses it, and because it has not physical sensations to back up the feeling of motion, it assumes you have been poisoned and so makes you throw up.
