Have not tried it on a boat as yet

I have not tried the suit on a boat as yet. Will keep you posted when I do at the end of Feb (when I'll have my new boat delivered).
But the suit just does feel right. Will let you know how it it is once I'll have it tested on the boat.
Cheers

Just remember that if you want to buy a single spanner, you can purchase a " snap-on" make for nearly 20 quid

Or you can buy one down the market for 50p, now for general occasional use the 50p spanner from the market will serve you fine for many years

The mechanic however would prefer the snap-on, because he's a purist and wants to only work with the best tools available , as he thinks poor quality is a false economy. ( Cos thats what his Grandfather always told him as a kid ! )

Personally Manos , sometimes the 50p job will do you just as well

Like I said unless your life is gonna depend on this dry suit, I still think the dry suit could also serve you well for the money. ie keeping your feet dry when launching

Just trying to find this address in my emails will have it posted on by tonight. Rvrtg ASAP

It all depends why you want a dry suit or any suit to wear on a bot for? If it is just to potter about is fine but I do not think is for long distance cruising. There you need something heavy and durable.
For the races I will either get a TYPHOON or a CREWSAVER. Any ideas which is the better one??

try attached link I believe they are some of the best prices I have come across, the breathable typhoon alpha looks good

http://www.kitesurferbetty.co.uk/eshop/index.html

also give the dinghy store a phone call based at Datchet water, I was there the other day and they had a good offer on dry suits, cant rember which make but looked good price

http://www.dinghystore.co.uk/contact/

also Andark diving near Bursledon southampton ( do web search ) they have a large stock, sometimes with individual offers

Manos what size / height are you ?, as you may be able to offload your suit to me
