There’s nothing like being out on the water. My best friend, Sage, and I absolutely love to go boating, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, and basically anything that has to do with the water. Sage owns two boats, and we go out on them as often as we can. Although I love boating just as much as she does, there is one set back for me and that is the fact that I get motion sickness when I’m out on the boat for more than just a couple hours. I can remember many times going out on her houseboat for the weekend, and I would get sicker than a dog for most of the trip. I do take some motion sickness medicine, and it does help a little bit, but it doesn’t take the sick feeling away completely. Something that I found that helps me more than anything else is having air conditioning on the boat. This applies mostly for when we are on the houseboat, especially during the night when I am trying to sleep on a rocking boat. The first houseboat that Sage owned didn’t have air conditioning, but she ended up selling that one and buying a newer houseboat that did have air conditioning. Ever since she bought the newer bought, we have been out on it almost every weekend because I am able to sleep in it and not be super sick the whole time. I can’t believe how much air conditioning has made a difference for me and my terrible motion sickness. I can actually enjoy boating to its fullest now that I have learned the trick of using air conditioning.
