I believe they do work (at least psychologically as a placebo effect), but only if worn in advance (i.e. put them on when you launch the boat, not when you start feeling dodgy). There are probably limits - I get really sick on the Waltzers etc at fair grounds - and I doubt they would manage that, so a F9 might not be good - buy a gentle rolling swell would be OK.
I also support the gingernuts theory (or drinking gingerbeer if thats your thing).
If its the F9 violent sickness rather than feeling sick in the swell you are worried about - then something medical like "stugeron" is probably required. Again I think needs to be taken in advance.
