Yes, sometimes threads come back.. ;-)

You think farmer's boots are cheap...
the farmer that lives next to me has a pair from hell..
They are about the same price as the Off-shore gear as it needs to hold against oil, as well as the stuff that come out of the backsides of pigs and the like.Also has steal toes..good farmers boots are expensive.
Other than that, I looked at them and agree, they are nice...even though the soles may be inadequate under slippery circumstances at sea, dunno.

Ah well,
If anyone cares, the M2:s are history apparently:

Hi
Unfortunately the M2 boots have been dropped from the range and replaced with a GoreTex Boot

I have the "duo" drysuit from Ravenspring

The bottom halves - with fitted "wellies" are excellent for launching etc on the slip.

Once launched and off you can fit the drysuit "top" if required

Found these to be excellent so far - and the "wellies" are comfortable and warm!!

Cheers
Jools

Ravenspring drysuit with neoprene lined boots attached - nothing better!!

Following on from the "farmers' wellies" comments though, its surprising that more yachtie manufacturers don't provide neoprene line boots like Aigle and Chameau. They are wonderfully warm, and last forever. Price is relative £35 a year?

Toggi wellies. 5mm neoprene right through. They grip well and they're less than 20 quid. My wife has them and likes them a lot. Not so farmery in appearance. Don't buy Hunters wellies...slippery bu**ers.

I use farmers wellies. Green with a light coloured sole and a fluffy lining. Nice sticky and knobbly soles...£8.99.

Don’t buy anything you cannot kick off if you fall in, I’ve tried to swim with wellies on and it is almost impossible. These ‘Hunter style’ wellies fit so well you can only remove them with a boot jack or Jill
