It is the only time dramamine has ever failed me.

I promptly took 3 - count 'em -3 more and got loopy enough to go to sleep on the fiberglass bench behind the bridge cabin to avoid the embarrassment.

Not one of my finer moments.

I was in good company, however. Two fellow sufferers stand out in my memory. One was a pretty, young, Amish girl, in her immaculate grey dress, white apron, and bonnet of white netting. She was on her honeymoon. She was just as seasick, but demur and graceful in her distress, unlike this 'ol clodhopper of a hillbilly. The other was a man in his late 30's who had a son with him about the same age as my then 10 year old Sum Yung Sun. Both he and his son were very seasick. The man had served for 4 years in the Navy in the Pacific on small patrol boats not much bigger than the fishing boat we were on. He had never been seasick before.
