I want to avoid the "wet-butt". I have a trip planned for a couple of days of TI sailing in 60 degree water with 65 degree air, so the wet seats will probably get annoying.
Has anyone tried the Kokatat Lightweight GORE-TEX Kayak Semi Drysuit ? Or a "Paddling" suit vs a dry suit? I like the idea of getting their Whirlpool bibs, so if anyone has worn them, did you stay dry?
I use a paddling suit by kokatat. i stay warm and dry all day- even when getting pounded by spray. The only difference is the neck. The paddling suits have a neoprene neck rather than latex.
The conditions you are talking about sound nearly like here-- usually 60 air, and 54ish water temps. polypro underwear, Fleece suit underneath and i am warm and dry all day
