2 dramamine tabs tonight to help you sleep and get it in your system and one in the morning about an hour before you get on the boat. Works everytime. I got sick once and have never gone offshore again without taking it.

You're not going to chum - Think positive :)
Don't get seasick myself so I can't comment of the available drugs, patches,etc.
Have found with others on the boat that eating saltines if the stomach starts to go green helps.
As it is a little warm offshore right now- not knowing if the boat your going out on has AC or not- if you get overheated there's always the trick of soaking a towel in the ice/water in the drink box and using the towel to cool the forehead and neck with.

Hoping you have a great trip and catch some :bluefish:

The others do not work period. You take some gingerale and ginger with you.

The antihistamines in the patch and dramamin can make you sick.

If your pulling an all nighter on the way to the ramp stop at Micky Ds buy a couple of extra Doubles then thrown in your drystorage. Wait tell about 10 or so and pull them out they should be heated to perfection by this point, just eat.... I have seen this done..... Double are now in the same catigory as bananas. NOT ALLOWED

Just don't sit down at the beginning. Stay where there's fresh air..... not in the cockpit. Get your legs. 1-2-3 beers may help in advance............ 6-7-8 will hurt.

Not real sure on preventing it but i do know the cure its the "shade of an oak tree" sea legs must come first. , watch stationary objects "clouds,rigs",stay out of the galley and spend all your time catching fish ,not worrying about it ,

Bonine works really well, you need to take it the night before your trip, available at Wal-Mart / Target.

Most of all, don't worry about it, it may or may not happen but if you worry about it, it's going to happen.
