True, it is a constant thought while I'm on the slipway, things to stand on, things to get foot squashed between, run over, boat slammed on! It's just up until now my feet have been the grippiest thing I can find that I don't mind getting wet!

I nearly bought some crocs...once...but I was informed my appeal to the opposite sex would diminish even more

Another Crocs user here. Brilliant! I wear them all year round, surprisingly warm even in the winter and seem to grip the deck pretty well.

Cocs are excellent if you want to look a complete tw@t.

Otherwise, flip flops work well when it's hot, wetsuit booties with soles, not neoprene bottoms, jetski boots. Sailing boots for foul weather use.
