Never been offshore before,,, Dramamine or Bonine!! ;) just to be on the safe side... nothing like making the first trip out a bad experience! ;)

Catch'm up!
Eat light the night before and morning of as well. Nothing greasy or heavy. Have something for breakfast but make it a danish or grits with little butter and drink plenty of water. And NO alcohol..LOL!!
Hangovers/Dehydration and being tossed around on the ocean don't mix!
if you do start to feel quesy, go inside the cabin and sit up with your head back not slumped forward or lying down.. Close your eyes intermittently and rest them a minute then look straight at the ceiling. By having your head back it doesnt "bob" around and looking at a fixed point like the ceiling lets your balance "reset" itself... if you do get sick keep drinking all the water you can stand...gives you something to purge and keeps you from dehydration which only makes it worse!!
( Learned that in NJROTC in High School.. it works!)

Carry some saltine type crackers with you. They help ease your stomach if you get to feeling queasy. Also a couple of small hand towells come in handy. I like to use a large coastlock swivel or a metal shower curtain ring so that I can attach them some place handy (like a railing or belt loop. 12" of parachute cord works good for tying them on a railing because it is easy to tie and untie doesn't tangle up as much when you aren't using it. Thread swivel onto the parachute cord and knot the ends. Drape over the rail with the swivel at the bottom of one side. now pass the end with the swivel thru the loop hanging from the other side and pull the swivel side to tighten the cord around the rail. Easy on/off and easy to slide down the rail. You may have to punch a hole in one corner of the towel to make a hole for your snap. The curtain ring works better for belt loops. Nothing like having something handy to wipe your hands on. Also don't forget to bring your sunglasses. Some kind of retainer for them (like Croakies) comes in real handy.
