We dive in 7 mm one piece wet suits that work great 9-10 months of the year.. Although we would like to own dry suits, it's currently a little beyond our reach. The water temperature is 40 degrees this winter, not uncommon here. We rent a small boat and dive twice before returning to the harbor. The first dive is comfortable and the problem arises during the surface interval, typically 45 minutes to 1 hr. In this time the suit gets extremely cold. The boat does not have a spot to strip/dry off. I know that we are not the first persons to experience this problem. Suggest appreciated, other than to stop diving... PS Great Board..
