I'm with Biggles on this - thermal base layer, fleece undersuit, drysuit, ballaclava, Gecko, gloves. My HH Vhf, knife, personal flare pack are all attached to my lifejacket. I did my safetyboat course on the first weekend in March and I spent about 10 mins in the water righting a capsized dinghy - I didn't feel cold at all.

Now all I need is a decent sized boat so I can go out in the cold rough stuff!

Gloves!

I have tried many over the years, just wanted to know what people have found the "best" in terms of keeping your pinkies warm and dry?

Cheers

Jon, I use Neoprene divers gloves bought from Aldi or Lidl in one of their sales. Warm hands - good grip. I have a stainless steering wheel which can be almost unbearable to hold with bare hands in winter - but fine with gloves on. Perhaps not good for buttons/dials on instruments as quite bulky.

Musto Amara/Fleece Shooting gloves - fold back velcro fingers for bogies/buttons, they are not immersion proof but are good enough!

going to sound odd but from my sailing backround the cheap 1 pound builders gloves also come in a thermo version and retail around 2 pounds sooo expensive I know but they are awsome for cold days...
