...... when are you expecting those upstate NY water temps. to be in the 50F.-60F. range ??

I don't paddle or boat in NY but I'm guessing your water temps are in the low 30's at present . Don't know this for certain but I'm bettin it'll take a month and a half still , to push through the 40's ... maybe some other more informed NY'er's can be of better assist on those NY water temps for you and wife ... be safe , that's cold water and can be especially dangerous to the uninformed .

You are well north of us in MD and our peidmont river temps are 37F.-40F. ... PA is still in the low to mid 30's right now .

Don't think you should count on a wetsuit in those temps . Wait till it's well into the 50's water temps and then go slow and careful until things are warmed up more .

Until you can get something better , save this link for NY inland water temps. (it's in Celsius so you'll have to convert) ... and I think you'll have to click on "Temp." to open the map , I did ...
