We are just a few minutes from Lake Erie. I grew up on the lakes so I am fimillar with the temp's and roughness of the water. We will not be jumping right in to open water stuff. There are hundreds of canals and rivers in our area that will keep us busy increasing our skills.
Other than taking some classes, I've read just about as much as I think I can and watched enough videos on recoveries to make a documentary, thats why I'm asking more about the accessories right now.
I may look into picking up some skirts more early on, esp for my girlfriend as she is 100 lbs and gets chilled much easier than I do. It could help a good bit for her let alone myself. Even at 80 degrees inland the lake is generally 10 degrees cooler.
Thanks again all for the suggestions so far.
