I wouldnt want to be sat in a boat again in a wetsuit in winter. Been there done that ...fishing, kayaking, diving, water ski-ing..........b***** freezing. But we are using boats thru the depths of winter. Minus temps mean calm days and used to mean good cod fishing. So cold once I poured my coffee in m'wet suit boots to try and warm m'feet up, and the windchill over the suit-'orrible. Nope drysuit and woolly bear plus a set of thermals underneath and a wooly hat wi earflaps..it ain't pretty but its soooo warm
Alternatively as today- 15m boat, heater, oven, tv and most importantly a kettle and teapot! force 7 NE & blissfully warm and dry!
Felt a bit guilty sending crew on deck but someone has to stay at the wheel
