No, you really need a dry suit. As CapnHand pointed out, a wet suit will tend to cool you off if you're out of the water, since the water will evaporate. The other advantage of the dry suit is that you can layer under it... and adjust for the temperatures that way. In cool weather with cold water, you might want just the drysuit over your clothes... in cold weather, you'd probably want to add polar fleece as additional insulation.

BTW, you really shouldn't revive dead threads, since it is considered poor net etiquette to do so.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
