paddling in the salt

Thanks for the update. It seems like a lot of newbie paddlers have the idea that the ocean is a lot like their sit-on-top adventures at home on local lakes.
This seems like a good place to point out that they can be quite different.
Dressing for immersion saves a lot of lives every year in the PNW, and unfortunatley those that don't heed the 55 degree water temps sometimes don't make it home.
