if its nasty i use thin thermal glove liners and heavy duty marigolds, similar to the picture,but thicker.. they are from west midland farmers. cost a tenner, and very warm as they are lined inside and completely waterproof... i have 3/4 sets of marine so called "waterproof" gloves and they aint waterproof at all.

i lost an index finger a couple of years back ,,had it stiched back on, but ,as soon as i get on a boat even in the summer it goes white and is agonisingly painfull ,,looks like a deadmans finger ,, ,so i wear cheap 4mm wet suit gloves when afloat , with the finger tips dipped in impact glue and left to dry for grip ,i can handle rope fine ,only need to pull a few pots ,and not often i anchor ,,have a bit of bother though trying to change a prop wearing them ...especialy trying to get the split pin in the castled nut.. lol

it would appear from other threads the sealskinz get a generally good rating and pop up a lot.

found the ultragrip ones with rubber dots on the palm for £21.89 on as they have over 20% off all sealskinz stuff.

Might be worth it for xmas, just ordered some.

Found the sealskiz gloves an excellent buy, also carry two salveo click and heat pads, excellent when it gets really cold

Although I am a diver of many years, I do not like neoprene gloves when driving a RIB - I think they are not particularly warm. I have tried a few different gloves, some OK ish, others rubbish. I bought some of these at a Southampton Boat Show and think they are the dogs whatsits -

I bought some musto gloves which are neoprene on the backs and leather on the palms and fingers. These have served me well over the years but they do get uncomfortable when they get wet for a short time but warm up fairly quickly.
