Hi Sirzap

"I'm not too sure that I would want to be plugged into the boats electric system though."

It's no problem. As it is a 12v system you won't be electrocuted. Also the systems use a plug that pulls out if the rider falls from the machine. Remember that motorcyclists ride in the wet and there is no problem with the heated jackets/gloves. I've used some for years.

This is quite interesting, as we are just thinking about using electric heated jackets for diving, run from a large battery pack which also runs the underwater torches. Cold that will be a couple of hours in Blefast Lough in the winter then,
