Seasickness: Samuel Johnson, an 18th-century British social commentator famous for his dictionary of English, wrote: "To cure seasickness, find a good big oak tree and wrap your arms around it." If only it were that easy. At sea, different remedies work for different people, so stock a variety of treatments. If I'm feeling queasy, a glass of red wine and I'm fine. However, once someone else becomes seasick, any such oral remedy is bound to come back up again.
The most reliable remedies I know are suppositories, such as Compazine and Tigan, used to combat nausea in postoperative patients. Aboard Iolaire, we've used Compazine for years, and it's been 100-percent effective.
