OK. Since everyone is suddnely so interested in avoiding

I had an evil uncle who worked on the boat from Cairns to Green
Island.  He hated tourists.  When he saw one looking a bit green
about the gills he would amble along in front of them casually
munching on a cream bun or something equally hideous...  It
usually did the trick, so he said.

So, tip number 23 is:

"Avoid malicious deckhands eating large red saveloys for lunch".

Fortunately I have never had any trouble with seasickness, but
I understand that is no guarantee I never will.  People who work
the prawn trawlers tell me you can have no trouble at all on one
boat but be sick as a dog on another.
