Who has been out in the cold weather?

Just wondering- having spent the last 2 days out on the water what the worst weather you have been out on a RIB in/on?

We were at -3'c yesterday ( without any windchill), and about -1 in the dark , and snow today !

I think Bogi may have done worse ?

Although it was for work, Last year up in Aukra (near Moldre) in Norway, took the Zodiac rescue boat out for its monthly test run, it was -13 . It was a 'dry' cold though and, wrapped up nice and warm in the survival suit it was actually quite enjoyable......

Was out off Hayling island at the weekend testing the new boat before taking it home to Dublin.. Had to clear the ice off the cushions before going out but it was absolutely fantastic.. I think it was around -2 .. Spent about an hour out there.. It certainly woke me up anyway!!(note to self- next time bring warmer gloves and a pair of glasses!!)  Hoping to get out on the water here at home for the first time this weekend.. No matter what the weather is like!! 
