The Cattle Prodder

Mags gets sea sick in anything above sea state smooth. Being tied up in a marina is no guarantee that she will escape the dreaded mal de mer. On one occasion after a bouncy lunch stop in Cowes, Mags showed her colours as we past Royal Yacht Squadron. ( I like to say it was more because at the time they wouldn’t allow woman to join)

CaptureThen we discovered the cattle prodder…. Worn on the wrist it produces a small electrical current – which does leave a small mark when being worn (hence our name for it) – but it works and actually works – so much so that Mags can cook down below. It has transformed her enjoyment of sailing.

The comfort quest version is no longer available but I understand the Relief Band works the same way
