I'm sort of thinking I might like to try diving at a later date, so a neoprene diving one might make sense. Need to stop pouring money into the boat first though, before the piggy bank recovers enough to think about diving kit

A set of ankle weights might help.(though you might need to wear a lifejacket too to be on the safe side)

I'd look at a membrane diving drysuit and woolly bear if you fancy using it for both-they cost more but are lighter for use out of water and IMO quite a bit tougher than neoprene suits.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
