Rib clothing!

When our very disagreeable family finally and unanimously agree to take the boat out for a blast, we generally all just make for our wetsuits and PBD's hanging on their hangers on a tree outside our kitchen door where the tow jeep is parked. They pretty much live there from May to sept. and they suit us fine because where we live.... on the Atlantic Cork coast, you're generally gonna get wet!

If we go along the coast to one of many lovely local seafood restaurants we all look a bit weird walking in like we are SeaWorld employee's....

What do most of you wear on board that's both tidy and dry, particularly if you're heading somewhere nice for lunch? Thanks.

Here's my disagreeable bunch of eejits that I'm lucky enough to live with for reference.....

RIBase
Musto over trousers or Palm dry trousers along with a Helly Hanson (replace with Musto, Decathalon, Paramo) offshore coat.

Wife uses Paramo trousers with a non branded boat coat, both kids are in Musto coats with either Flood suits (https://safequip.co.uk/product/safequip_flood_suit/) or non branded waterproof legs.

The flood suts are very good but have no warmth so wear something underneath suitable for the pub!

Thanks a lot everybody for the replies.

Treerat - super job. I'm onto a few of those flood suits. They look perfect. Thank you.

Sounds good. Let's try organise that for our Oct. trip back home again - as soon as the Irish passport office get their finger out and return my kids new passports, we're outta here back to our home in Central Asia early this week so can't be done now I'm afraid.

Dig them out, think of a price and send me a PM with a pic and we'll take it from there. Thanks.

I like this stuff.

Fladen Two Piece Flotation Suit Rescue System

They do a one piece as well. I prefer they two piece because you can leave the trousers on the boat when you go ashore for lunch.
