I looked further into air temps as I just took a guess at what they would be. It appears from what people here have said hear and what I could find out online air temps hover around 70 to 75F in July. I could do my drysuit but maybe a farmer john with my drytop would be better.

I went to wetsuit warehouse webpage and it generally shows 2mm farmer john as a 70F and up suit and a shorty 2mm 68F and up. Probably because of open arm pits on Farmer Johns. But then they also talk about stretch the more pricey ones have 100 percent stretch while the cheaper ones like BodyGlove are around 50 percent stretch. I don't want to buy something that is to restrictive. Not going to buy a used wetsuit, no thanks. So for wetsuit people does the stretch rating make a difference? I figure buy once something decent rather than buy something and then end up upgrading later.
