  Just lost one to 56 degree water
  Posted by: FrankNC on Dec-10-12 8:28 PM (EST)
 

Here in Jordan lake the water temp is already down to 56. A man lost his life swimming out to a boat that had drifted from shore. I wear a wetsuit starting at 70 degree water and the water here gets into the 40's.

I had a six month old dry suit have multiple failures in the 1990's and I've not worn one since without a wet suit underneath. The dry suit is really great until it leaks and then it is pretty deadly. Watch those Gaskets, you do not know how long the suit has been on the rack at the store and for some folks the gaskets only last a season.
