Delivered From The Sea

This horrible experience has left me doubting of ever boarding another boat. I spent a few hundred on rods, reels, and tackle, excitingly preparing for this trip.


Well my chartered boat boarded at 4:30AM, I stored away my gear and started conversations with fellow passengers. Two hours into the trip I became sea sick, my stomach started to turn as I felt an urge to vomit. Finally I sprang to the restroom and emptied my stomach, this was only the beginning of woes.


Long story short, I had vomited six times and felt the seventh coming. Our boat would return home at 4:00PM, and docking at 5:00PM. A deck hand came into the galley and I asked how much more till we return, he responded 2 1/2 hours (it was only 1:30pm). I then went to the restroom, vomited (dry heaving a this time), and fell on my knees and began to weep. I said "God, I can no longer take this, please let's go home."


After five minutes I lifted myself from off my knees, washed my hands and rinsed my mouth. I opened the door and sat again in the galley. As the captain came into the galley to retrieve a soda, I asked again, when are we returning? The captain turned to me and said, " the waters have all of a sudden become violent, we're heading home now!"

Thank you Jesus!

Re: Delivered From The Sea

LOL! I am sorry for you! Sea sickness is a terrible thing.


I spent 4 years in the navy, and lived thru some pretty amazing storms (Hurrican force) and never once got sea sick.

but those that did sure made me grateful the sea never got me!

How many others paid good money for this shortened trip for which you give Jesus praise for?

Around 25 people. They all caught plenty of fish, so they weren't disappointed. As a matter of fact, many gave me one free fish, and wished me well.

Re: Delivered From The Sea

Why didn't you just ask Jesus to take away the sea sickness?

I would rather have went home, taken a shower, lay in my bed, rather than smelling like fish and soaked in vomit on a boat.
