Thanks for the advice Ken, yes we generally do take several bottles of 
water as well.  Between the coffee in the morning and some beer later on 
in the day, sometimes nothing will make you feel better or quench a 
thirst like good ole water.  Not to mention once in a while someone does 
something stupid and gets hooked, bit, crabbed, finned etc and it's nice 
to have clean water to rinse the wound off with.  My problem when I 
dehydrate is not so much the fast pulse but the bp goes very low and i 
get light headed and at times can pass out for a few seconds.  luckily I 
can feel this coming on if I am going to go down so can sit / squat or 
otherwise get myself in a safer position  and try to ward it off if 
possible.  So far havent had this problem fishing, and hope i don't, 
with my luck it'd hit when Im trying to reel in the big one and the fish 
would laugh it's watertight ass off as I go head first into the drink to 
get a prime view of it swimming away to freedom.
being in the sun, even with a hat on, yes you do dehydrate, and with the 
wind blowing on us 24/7 id assume that probably speeds up the effect as 
well.
Then in the afternoon when we start getting tired and sleepy the coffee 
taste good again, to give the kick to get back in and put the boat up 
for the ride home.  At this point, we either sulk and goto the seafood 
restaraunt, or clean what we caught and eat a good dinner that way too.
Generally a good  2 liters of coffee get drank on one of our trips.
Take care
Aaron

Ken,
I am glad you don't need medications, but it is incorrect and  
dangerous to suggest that all individuals can cure whatever ails them  
with diet, exercise and other behavior modifications alone, sans  
meds. There are drugs and then there are drugs, and to lump them all  
under the same rubric does more harm than good.  The theories you  
posit as to the origin of gout are hypotheses and are not mainstream-- 
just as not all allopathic medicine is good, neither is it all  
harmful. Moreover, there is little to no regulation of the natural  
foods, supplements and alternative medical industries, so there is no  
reliable way (save for those few responsible practitioners and  
manufacturers pledging to set and adhere to voluntary standards) to  
ensure the safety and efficiency of alternative treatments.
That being said, adequate hydration is essential across the board.
