I am a kayak angler as well as a SIB user and we have a whole array of waterproof clothing available for the sport. You are looking at surface drysuits from £299-600 but I use for most of the year a pair of Kokatat high waist paddle pants which are light and easy to take off for a pee.

A cag top which has seals on neck and sleeves

The good thing with these types of gear is they are very light and stop the wind and rain but don't restrict your movement. For cold weather I simply add a micro fleece two piece under suit with tracky bottoms and a t-shirt and fish in dec / jan conditions so I know they work. Should the worse happen and you go in the water, you are protected, okay not a full drysuit but nevertheless for the most part you stay dry with perhaps a damp belly where the two garments overlap.
Because these items or similar are light weight and roll up tight, you can store them on board in a bag taking little space when not in use.

Hope that helps

Some boat jumbles are full of good used gear, but there is a lot of rubbish out there to.
