Reader Search Results Today on the Scientific Study of Motion Sickness and Related Hull Design for Seakeeping

Well, today among many hits, I had indication of the following useful and related independent reader searches from Spain, New York, and Croatia. The common theme in these is the scientific study of motion sickness and vessel hull design to minimize motion, with a side focus on related ferries that may be for sale. It turns out the Natchan Rera and World were two of the most thoroughly designed and studied HSV's in the world on this matter. Scientific links are below:

The above search pulls down the following interesting article from Marine Log in Sept. 2007. Page 2 of the article begins a technical discussion on motion based on ferry vessel design:

Nice to have a team of researchers from around the world for direction on this, ;)

In China we use dried plum to prevent seasickness. Not to eat it, but put dried plum on your bellybutton with a Chinese medicine tape to fix it. It works for Chinese people. No idea for how does it work for your western guys.

Very good. I think I had heard of the plum remedy once before here in Hawaii. You must be one of the people from Shanghai where I have noticed this blog has a couple of readers.

I have some more to put up about the Motion Sickness Incidence (MSI) mentioned in some of those studies particularly out of Japan. I have been studying the MSI and will do a post on it soon.
